Victorians inspiring each other lives one book at a time

Four out of five children in remote, regional and indigenous communities in Australia cannot read above minimum standards. Half of young people living in poverty and unemployment have difficulty reading and writing. Bus of Books (BOB) provides a solution to significantly reduce this problem and increase the standards of reading for children in Australia.

The Founder of BoB, Colin Lee says, “Reading is a human right and education is the best way in addressing the challenges our world faces today and in doing so make a difference. More than ever before, a young person’s success today is closely linked to their ability to express their ideas with clarity and certainty”.

Thank you to the University of Melbourne staff and students for organising and sponsoring this special event in support of Bus of Books. We are delighted that the University has decided to work together with Bus of Books to inspire young lives one book at a time.

We’re excited to be part of this partnership which highlights how young people can help each other and make a difference in each other’s lives and communities by sharing their love of reading. Over the past few weeks, staff and students at the University of Melbourne have been collecting new and pre-loved books in preparation for a hand-over to the bring along to the launch event.

There are interesting and engaging speakers from the Faculty of Business and Economics, the Vice Chancellor, the Bus of Books Team and the Co-Founder of Gloria Jean’s Coffee speaking at this event which promises to be a fun and inspiring evening. Let’s come together engage, empower and educate our present and future leaders and enjoy the Bus of Books Launch in Victoria.

Bus of Books hope to foster change by inspiring the imaginations of young people, helping them enjoy the experience and benefits of reading & learning and enabling them to make a difference in each other’s lives one book at a time.
