Room to Read believes that world change starts with educated children.  We work in partnership with local communities throughout Asia and Africa to provide critical educational resources to the children who need it most.  We are a global organisation helping millions of children across 10 countries benefit from quality educational opportunities.

We concentrate on two areas where we can have the greatest impact:  literacy and gender equality in education.  Specifically we work 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 need to succeed in school and beyond.

We focus on helping children early in their lives, because we believe that education empowers people to improve socioeconomic conditions for the families, communities, countries and future generations. 

Since our inception in 2000, we have helped transform education for more than 9.7 million children throughout Asia and Africa.

Imagine a world in which every child has access to an education.  With your help, we are doing our best to make this dream a reality, one child at a time.
