Room to Read has been working for nearly 20 years to end illiteracy and gender inequality through education. We partner with schools, communities and governments around the world to equip schools with vibrant learning spaces and well-stocked libraries, train and support teachers, and help keep girls in school longer.
We mobilize children’s book publishers in the countries where we work by creating a demand for children’s literature and promoting the growth of local publishing industries. Millions of children now have high quality storybooks written in their own language about their own culture – often for the first time ever – thanks to the Room to Read community.
Now, we want to share what we’ve learned and created – and, yes, what we’ve read – with you.
Join a community of readers, doers, and global citizens of all ages to learn something new each month and delight in the magic of books – from the surprising titles that social good CEOs swear by, to beautiful storybooks from around the world that you won’t find anywhere else.
