Our Partners

Room to Read's partners are a huge factor in our success. Our key Institutional Partners, In-Kind Partners, and Promotional Partners provide us with generous financial and organizational support. They also raise awareness of our mission and help further our goal of providing the lifelong gift of education to millions of children in the developing world. For more information on how to become a Room to Read partner, please read about Becoming a Partner.

We also rely heavily on in-country partners to help us implement our programs. Working in collaboration with local NGOs helps us build upon the strengths of existing work and also ensures long-term sustainability of our programs. Please see Programs & Countries section of our Frequent Questions for more details

The Republic of Tea, the innovative company that sparked a revolution of specialty and premium teas, chose Room to Read as its nonprofit partner for their new tea line for children called Little Citizens' Herb Teas. The Fair Trade Certified teas, which are naturally caffeine-free and organic-Rooibos based, offers three flavors: Strawberry Vanilla Tea, Tangerine Tea and Apple Cherry Tea. For every tin of Little Citizens' Herb Teas sold, The Republic of Tea will contribute $1 to Room to Read in its goal to establish 100 libraries, including a minimum of two bi-lingual libraries for underprivileged children in South Africa. Look out for the teas and complementary accessory line in specialty and natural markets nationwide.
