Room to Read
Over 300 million children around the world do not have access to education and may never learn to read or write. With this in mind, Room to Read partners with local communities to provide quality educational opportunities to children with the least access to resources for reading.
Room to Read initially brought donated books to rural communities, but they now help children gain access to education through a variety of programmes including building schools, establishing libraries, publishing books and providing education programmes for girls. They seek to intervene early in the lives of children in the belief that education is a lifelong gift that empowers people to improve socioeconomic conditions for their families, communities, countries, and future generations.
