to Read is a global organization transforming the lives of
millions of children in low-income communities by focusing on
literacy and gender equality in education. Founded in 2000 on the
belief that World Change Starts with Educated Children®, our
innovative model focuses on deep, systemic transformation within
schools during two time periods that are most critical in a
child’s schooling: early primary school for literacy acquisition
and secondary school for girls’ education. We work in
collaboration with local communities, partner organizations, and
governments to develop literacy skills and a habit of reading
among primary school children and ensure girls can complete
secondary school with the skills necessary to negotiate key life
decisions. By focusing on the quality of education provided within
the communities and ensuring these outcomes are measured, we have
created a model that can be replicated, localized and sustained by
governments. With its, global headquarters in San Fransisco, Room
to Read has benefited 18 million children across over 30,000
communities in Bangladesh, Cambodia, Grenada, Honduras, India,
Indonesia, Jordan, Laos, Myanmar, Nepal, Rwanda, South Africa, Sri
Lanka, Tanzania, Vietnam, and Zambia. Room to Read India has
received several awards and recognition over the years including
recognition as one of the top ten NGOs to work for during the past
six years by the Great Places to Work Institute., and Zambia.
