Why Room to Read?

Room to Read keeps their overhead well below the industry average to maximize the percentage of your contributions that go toward their programs, and they spend their program funds wisely so that missions of children may benefit from their work.

Room to Read targets two critical milestones during a child's school years that can dramatically impact a child's life and their future generations. They concentrate on literacy learning during first and second grades because once a child reaches third grade without basic literacy skills, it is extremely difficult for the child to catch up. To us this means a child develops both the skills and habits of reading which they believe together contribute to lifelong learning. They also concentrate efforts during a girl's transition into secondary school in sixth and seventh grades when she has a high risk of dropping out of school because wages for girls increase by 15-25% for each additional year a girl remains in secondary school.

Beers for Books at Harpoon

April 28, 2017

Our second annual Beers for Books event at Harpoon was a success! Thank you to everyone who braved the snowy Boston weather to support a great cause. We raised over $1,800 dollars - that's more than 1,800 books, or 6 years of girls' education!
