Description

Our Mission Room to Read seeks to transform the lives of millions of children across Asia and Africa by focusing on literacy and gender equality in education. Working in collaboration with local communities, partner organizations and governments, we develop literacy skills and a habit of reading among primary school children and ensure girls have the skills and support needed to complete their secondary education. Learn more at www.roomtoread.org. Our Vision Room to Read believes that World Change Starts with Educated Children. We envision a World in which all children can pursue a quality education that enables them to reach their full potential and contribute to their community and the world. Our Programs Room to Read focuses on two objectives: Literacy and Gender Equality in Education. Our Literacy program enables primary school children to become independent readers: • Room to Read focuses its efforts on developing reading skills and the habit of reading in primary school aged children because literacy is the foundation for all future learning. We do this primarily by establishing multi-lingual libraries, increasing access to age-appropriate and culturally relevant reading materials (including publishing our own original local language children’s books), and improving the child friendliness of the school environment. We’ve recently increased our support for reading instruction including creating materials and providing training for teachers. Our Girls’ Education program supports girls to complete secondary school with the skills necessary to negotiate key life decisions: • Room to Read focuses on girls transitioning to or in secondary school because that is where the biggest – and most permanent – gaps in gender equality in education take place. We do this primarily through supporting girls to attend school, providing female mentoring and creating more girl-friendly school environments. We’ve recently added more emphasis on teaching life skills to girls so they will finish school and maximize their opportunities. Our Results • Over 5.1 million children have been provided better access to education through Room to Read since 2000. • 1,442 Schools & 11,240 Libraries have been established by Room to Read. • 553 Children’s books in 25 Local Languages have been published, representing more than 5.7 million books. • Over 9.4 million children’s books have been distributed including original Room to Read titles, donated English-language books and local language books. • 10,590 Girl Scholars have been supported by Room to Read’s Girls’ Education program.
