Switzerland Gala Dinner 2019


Room to Read's


Switzerland Gala Dinner

Together we can achieve "The End of Impossible"

Join us on Saturday, November 9, 2019 at The Dolder Grand, Zürich


They said Everest was insurmountable. In 1969, the lunar landings transfixed the globe. The eradication of smallpox in 1980 is one of the greatest humanitarian achievements.

Humankind has overcome many seemingly “impossible” challenges and now we have the catalyst to solve one more. Together, we can end illiteracy by giving children around the globe access to education.

To date, Room to Read has reached 16.8 million children in over 37,000 communities in Asia and Africa with our literacy and girls’ education programmes. This year, you can support our mission to end the impossible by joining us at the 2019 Switzerland Gala Dinner.
