Each month we feature a new charity to share with our readers in hopes that they might donate to or at least spread the word to others for awareness. For November we decided to profile Room to Read.
In their own words:
Room to Read believes that World Change Starts with Educated Children. We envision a world in which all children can pursue a quality education that enables them to reach their full potential and contribute to their community and the world.
Room to Read seeks to transform the lives of millions of children in developing countries by focusing on literacy and gender equality in education. Working in collaboration with local communities, partner organizations and governments, we develop literacy skills and a habit of reading among primary school children, and support girls to complete secondary school with the relevant life skills to succeed in school and beyond.
While many of the programs are great, maybe you can help out so RtR can reach their goal of 11,000 libraries established (there were 9,000 by March) by the end of 2010? And a donation of $25 can buy school uniforms for four girls. There are actually several ways to get involved.
If you have an idea for a charity that you would like to have profiled on Randomville, then please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
