We envision a world in which all children can pursue a quality education, reach their full potential and contribute to their community and the world.
To achieve this goal, we focus on two areas where we believe we can have the greatest impact: literacy and gender equality in education. We work in collaboration with communities and local governments across Asia and Africa to develop literacy skills and a habit of reading among primary school children, and support girls to complete secondary school with the life skills they’ll need to succeed in school and beyond.Room to Read accomplishes this mission through programs such as building libraries and schools and publishing children's books in local languages.
They have a four-star rating from Charity Navigator, which means you can trust that money donated to Room to Read will support their mission.
