509 and counting...
Over the past decade, our Girls’ Education program has been providing educational support to thousands of girls in eight countries. To date, 509 of these girls have graduated from secondary school and are on their way to building bright futures as young educated women. Over 10,000 girls that are currently working their way to complete the program will soon follow. Though Room to Read’s financial support ends upon graduation, Room to Read continues to remain in contact with the graduates to ensure that their experience with our program has prepared them for whatever lies ahead.
In our 2010 Girls’ Education Yearbook , we briefly reintroduce three graduates who are continuing their education and pursuing their life dreams. Their complete stories speak to the determination and drive that brought each girl through secondary school and continues to propel them forward.
