Room to Read is a global non-profit organisation working to transform the lives of millions of children throughout Asia and Africa by improving literacy and gender equality in education.

Worldwide 250 million children, almost 40% of all primary school-age children, are not learning basic skills like reading and writing. The world’s poorest children are also four times less likely to be in primary school, as compared to those in world’s richest countries.

We believe that all children, regardless of gender or background, have a right to education.

Room to Read is recognised as one of the most effective and fiscally responsible organisations in global education. Our commitment to full transparency, combined with consistent monitoring of our impact, assures our investors that their funding is achieving real, measurable impact, so that millions of children may benefit from our work.

We rely on a global network of dedicated investors and business partners, as well as a team talented, passionate individual from our volunteer fundraising Chapters who not only raise funds for us but also demonstrate creativity in using their adventurous spirit to support our work. To find out more about how you can help support one of the most inspiring and important stories in the fight for global education today please contact us at australia@roomtoread.org or new.zealand@roomtoread.org.
