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

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
