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 Francisco, 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 has received several awards and recognition over the years
including recognition as one of the top ten NGOs to work for during the
past five years by the Great Places to Work Institute.
