About Room to Read
Below is an overview of the projects we are supporting on the platform, their status as well status updates for projects that have been funded
Room to Read believes that World Change Starts with Educated Children. We envision a world where every child can reach his or her full potential thanks to education and be an active participant in society.
Our Literacy Program is designed to help every child become an independent reader.
Our Girls’ Education Program ensures that girls complete secondary school and have the skills to negotiate key life decisions.
Founded in 2000 on the belief that World Change Starts with Educated Children®, Room to Read is creating a world free from illiteracy and gender inequality. We are achieving this goal by helping children in historically low-income communities develop literacy skills and a habit of reading, and by supporting girls as they build skills to succeed in school and negotiate key life decisions. We collaborate with governments and other partner organizations to deliver positive outcomes for children at scale. Room to Read has benefited more than 32 million children and has worked in 21 countries and 49,000 communities, with additional support through remote solutions that facilitate learning beyond the classroom. Room to Read aims to reach 40 million children by 2025. Learn more at www.roomtoread.org
Room to Read had its humble origins in Nepal, where we began bringing donated books to rural communities. Today, we are a global organization transforming the lives of millions of children in historically low-income countries by focusing on literacy and gender equality in education.
