Help us fulfill our wish list.
Unwrap World Change this holiday season with a gift that keeps on giving—first to your friends and family, and then to children across the developing world. Each gift comes with a great customizable e-card you can share with the recipient.
A bicycle for a girl
School can often be two to 3 hours' walk from home along remote roads, making school an impossibility for millions. A bicycle can cut that time down dramatically. Room to Read's Girls' Education program puts students in the fast lane, helping them navigate the road to a brighter future.
Fill a library with puzzles, games and educational toys
Educational games, puzzles and toys ignite a child's imagination, develop critical thinking skills and teach problem solving. Room to Read's Reading Room program establishes libraries filled with local language childrens' books, and provides three years of librarian training and support.
School uniforms for four girls
Sometimes the barrier to education is something as simple as having appropriate clothes for school. Room to Read's Girls' Education program helps keep girls in school by providing school supplies, uniforms and transportation, along with tutoring, adult mentors and other support to equip them with skills to navigate key life decisions.
Make it a gift!
Printable or electronic gift cards are available once your donation is completed.
A year of girls' education
Educating girls during their adolescence yields some of the highest investment returns. During the transition from primary to secondary school when most girls drop out, Room to Read's Girls' Education program provides holistic support to assist girls to stay in and thrive in school.
Establish a great new library
Open the door to a library, and you unlock the door to imagination, creativity and inspiration. Room to Read's Reading Room program turns a room into a sanctuary of learning and potential.
Construction of a Primary School classroom block
Dilapidated or overcrowded schools are not conducive environments for successful learning and academic development. A school allows all children the opportunity to reach their true educational potential. With this gift comes the ability to dedicate the building to a loved one and plan a visit to the school to see first-hand the impact and difference this gift will make in the lives of thousands of children.
