Room To Read
In places where community libraries or internet access are non-existent, Room to Read libraries serve as one of the few resources for independent learning and information-gathering for curious young minds. Our goal is to provide a variety of content to children in these communities, covering a myriad of themes including: gender equality, the environment, health, art, beginning words and basic vocabulary, morals and values, family life, folktales, rhymes and poems.

“Literacy unlocks the door to learning throughout life, is essential to development and health, and opens the way for democratic participation and active citizenship.”
