About Us Volunteer

The NJ Chapter of Room to Read aims to promote local businesses and facilitate fundraising projects that create awareness for literacy and gender equality in education worldwide, connecting our local and global communities for good. We support Room to Read's belief that education is key to breaking the cycle of poverty and creating opportunity.

Volunteering with the New Jersey Chapter is not only a great way to help further Room to Read’s mission but also an opportunity to develop new skills and make connections with like-minded individuals. Join us today!

 

Recipes Worth Reading continues to feed local folks and global minds.

December 5, 2017

The Recipes Worth Reading community cookbook encourages people to share a local meal and gain global perspective. Recipes Worth Reading features over 150 recipes from local chefs, shops, restaurants and home cooks.

500 cookbooks have been shared over the past few years to fund girls' education. The cookbooks make ideal holiday hostess gifts as a gift that gives back.

Addteq is the sponsor for the third printing of our cookbook which will be featured as part of NJ Restaurant Week 2019! Donations provide life skills workshop and leadership training for girls in low income countries who would otherwise be forced to drop out of school.

Room to Read has helped 90,000 girls complete secondary school through the Girls' Education Program. Room to Read has benefited over 17.6 million children across 37,000 communities in 16 countries and aims to reach 20 million children by 2020.

A World of Music

April 19, 2017

In the fall, the Room to Read New Jersey Chapter partnered with ADDTEQ to host an afternoon of music and drama to a jam-packed audience.  Thank you to our talented and dynamic performers: Sitarist Neeraj Prem, Cloud Nine, Nadam - Serenity in Sound, John Berkhalter and Jenna Rose Venturi who delighted the audience. Proceeds from the afternoon went to educating children in Asia and Africa.
