Room to Read

This non-profit organization has two very clear goals: literacy and gender equality in education.

Room to Read collaborates with communities and local governments across Asia and Africa, helping to develop literacy skills and supporting girls in their secondary educations. Eighty percent of funds raised go directly to programs which means your money will go to those who need your help the most.

The difference you can make in someone’s life is remarkable: a $250 donation will fund a full year of education for a girl in Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Laos, Nepal, Sri Lanka or Vietnam.
