Thanks to our incredible supporters Room to Read has helped change the life stories of more than 870,000 children in 2016 alone. Together we've transformed educational systems across Africa and Asia, building brighter future for families, communities, and entire countries. But the year isn’t over yet, and before it ends we're determined to change the stories of an additional 100,000 boys and girls before 2017. To help us do it, every dollar you contribute is matched — up to $1 million — through December 31st, thanks to a group of generous donors!
Over the next month we'll bring you stories from several children whose have reached new heights through our Literacy and Girls' Education programs. From seven-year-old Lakmal in Sri Lanka to 19-year-old Roshanara in India you'll hear the many ways life trajectories are changed with critical support systems. Here's a sneak peek video of the places and faces benefiting from your support! In light of Giving Tuesday join us and help Change Their Story with the gift of education!
