with Callan Farris

Callan Farris, actor and Disney Channel star, is teaming up with Room to Read as an #ActiveforEducation ambassador!

Callan has set a personal fundraising goal to invest in Room to Read's four-year Literacy Program in India and support young girls enrolled in Room to Read's Girls’ Education Program in India.

"Even while on set filming as an actor, my schooling and love of reading has always remained a top priority. I want children everywhere to flourish, dream big and have the resilience to overcome obstacles thanks to education," said Callan.

Together when we fund this project, we'll fill schools in India with hundreds of colorful, engaging local language children’s books published by Room to Read along with letter cards, word cards, exercises, workbooks and literacy games. The educators in the school will also receive training and ongoing support on how best to engage with students using these specialized learning materials that are geared towards early reading and writing skills. Additionally, girls in low-income communities in need will be supported to complete secondary school and develop key life skills such as confidence, critical thinking and perseverance, to succeed beyond the classroom. 

"I encourage children everywhere to take action alongside me so that together, we can unlock the potential of a generation of young learners around the world."
