Room To Read
Today, there are more than 770 million illiterate people in the world and over 300 million children who are not enrolled in school. Ninety-eight percent of these children live in Asia or sub-Saharan Africa. Room to Read is working hard to change this.
Room to Read partners with local communities throughout the developing world to provide quality educational opportunities by establishing libraries, creating local language children's literature, constructing schools, and providing education to girls. The organization seeks to intervene early in the lives of children in the belief that education empowers people to improve socioeconomic conditions for their families, communities, countries and future generations.
I hope you will join us in supporting Room to Read as we transform the lives of millions children in the developing world – one book, one child, one community at a time.
