About Us
Details of Education programme (s) Room to Read is a non-profit organization working to transform children’s lives through literacy and gender equality in education. Our core belief is that world change starts with educated children. We focus on two critical phases of a child’s educational development: primary and secondary school. First, Room to Read operates our Literacy Programme in primary schools to help all children obtain reading skills and develop the habit of reading – the foundation of all learning. We provide educational materials, libraries, safe classrooms, teacher training and curriculum development, depending on the needs of the region and local communities. Second, recognizing that girls in our countries of operation are at a much higher risk of dropping out in secondary school, we provide them with extra support through our Girls’ Education Programme. This holistic programme combines mentoring, academic support, life skills training and community engagement. To date, Room to Read has benefited more than 11.6 million children across the 10 countries in which we work: Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Laos, Nepal, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Vietnam, and Zambia. Our Literacy Programme operates in more than 19800 schools and our Girls’ Education Programme supports more than 47,000 girls. Room to Read India was launched in 2003 as our fourth country of operations.1 Room to Read India implements it literacy and Girls Education programme across Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Delhi, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Telangana, and Uttarakhand, Since 2003, we have impacted the lives of more than 3.7 million children in India by implementing our Literacy Programme in more than 8736 schools, , publishing 195 original children’s book titles in seven languages for distribution in schools, and supporting over 14190 girls to participate in the Girls’ Education Programme. Room to Read India is recognized as a leader by local governments, schools, and community partners for our Literacy Programme in the early grades. In recognition of this work, we were awarded the prestigious “Social Impact Award” in 2013, instituted by JP Morgan and The Times of India.
