ROOP is committed to a literate Victoria where disadvantaged children have the opportunities that literacy provides. Our model for impact is grounded in creating a culture of literacy for the children we serve - providing choice, access, and engagement opportunities for these children and the educators, parents and caregivers that support them.
ROOP is an important voice for children’s literacy, and in partnership with grassroots networks, volunteers, community hubs and playgroups across Victoria.
