Enhanced Education for Nearly 1 Million Girls

Commitment by

Room To Read

In 2010, Room to Read committed to establish libraries, train teachers on library and reading skills, pilot literacy initiatives among primary school children, and publish materials in local languages so that nearly one million girls and one million boys have enhanced educational resources. Additionally, the organization will equip thousands of girls with life skills and previously inaccessible educational opportunities. Through these efforts, Room to Read will further its successful track record and deepen impact by enhancing literacy skills, encouraging the habit of reading, and promoting gender equality in education. The organization will build upon existing funding relationships with corporate and government partners, including Barclays Capital, Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs, and the United States State Department, along with individual funders, to fuel its growth.
