READ Global Women's Empowerment Centers Initiative

Commitment by

Read Global

In 2010, READ Global committed to building 20 Women's Empowerment Centers located within newly constructed READ Community Knowledge Centers in India, Nepal, and Bhutan. Through the Women's Empowerment Centers, READ will form self-help groups and provide educational programming - often in partnership with other NGOs - for women and adolescent girls on subjects such as legal and human rights, vocational skills, access to education, ICT skills, literacy, and health education. The multi-pronged approach used by READ Global will empower 16,000 rural women and adolescent girls to earn a livelihood, become leaders within their communities, raise healthier families, and ensure that education is a priority for their own children.
