Support our work!

We partner with communities across Asia and Africa to develop a solid foundation in early primary school literacy and ensure that girls are equipped with the tools to successfully negotiate key life decisions that might otherwise pull them away from education. Success goes beyond just building schools. With your support Room to Read can provide communities with the tools they need to succeed. Your investment will leave a lasting legacy of transformation for thousands of communities across the globe.
