our programs

‘Read Aloud’ Program

Our story time sessions focus on reading aloud to children. Children loved being read to, and the more language exposure they have through books, the more literate they become.

Pop-up Libraries

Our pop-up-libraries are filled with donated classic children’s picture books. They pop-up in a variety of centres within Victoria. More importantly, parents can choose and take a book home for free to read with their child.

Christmas Book Giving

Wrapping and giving books to underprivileged children at Christmas time is a favourite tradition of the Reading out of Poverty Foundation.

New Mothers Initiative

ROOP works with medical practitioners and organisations to ensure new mothers are provided with the necessary resources, mentoring and support, to ensure regular literacy routines are established at home from an early age.


Empowering migrant and refugee parents with the opportunity to read stories to their children in their own language and English.
