Lead With Life Skills

Independent Researchers Evaluate Room to Read's Life Skills Curriculum

International education researchers surveyed 2,400 adolescent girls in Rajasthan, India to assess the impact that Room to Read’s life skills curriculum has on girls who are enrolled in our Girls' Education Program compared to students who are not. This rigorous, independent, two-year study shows that, with the support of a mentor and life skills curriculum, girls are staying in school longer and cultivating leadership-oriented skills after just two years.

Life skills are making an impact. Will you?

We are fighting against gender inequality in education. We just need the capital to do it.

One of the most important investments we can make is ensuring that girls are able to stay in school, advocate for themselves and navigate life's most difficult decisions. It costs just $25 a month to give a girl everything she needs to stay in school.
