Description

Room to Read is breaking the cycle of childhood illiteracy and poverty in a single generation.

We know how to solve the illiteracy crisis. Room to Read's approach not only works for all children - it works at scale. Our innovative Literacy Program results in some of the strongest positive learning outcomes in the sector and is the only global literacy organization that effectively combines these three core elements:

1. Effective literacy instruction

Our proven, data-backed instruction method combines the science of learning to read with the magic of loving to read. We know that how we teach is just as important as what we teach.

2. Engaging, child-friendly libraries

We partner with schools to establish libraries and advocate with governments to ensure every child has access to a child-friendly library filled with developmentally appropriate, diverse and engaging books.

3. Quality, local language children's books

Through our unique role as a nonprofit book publisher, Room to Read partners with local publishers, authors and illustrators to create and distribute diverse, culturally relevant children's books that inspire a love of reading.
