Room to Read

We often take reading for granted, so it’s easy to forget the people who taught us, the time it took and the resources we needed to learn this vital skill. Room to Read brings the benefits of reading to millions of children in low-income communities worldwide, with a focus on literacy and gender-equality in education. The investment into children’s literacy transforms not only their lives but also their communities for generations to come.  So far Room to read has helped more than 10.7 million children and distributed over 20.5 million books.
