Welcome Cricket Fans from
around the World!

Cheer for Room to Read at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 in Australia and New Zealand!

We are honoured to be partnering with the International Cricket Council (ICC) and all of you to bring education to the world’s children.

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.

Room to Read seeks to transform the lives of millions of children in 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 support girls to complete secondary school with the relevant life skills to succeed in school and beyond. Room to Read operates in 10 countries across Asia and Africa. Learn more about our work »
