We believe that World Change Starts with Educated Children.®

Room to Read India seeks to transform the lives of millions of children in India by focusing on literacy and gender equality in education.

Education is a powerful tool and by its’ use, it is possible to break the cycle of poverty within a single generation and reduce cultural biases along with inequality in the society. Educated children are healthier, earn more income for their families, can protect the environment and are greater contributors to their community and country. Education paves the path for long-term systemic change across low-income communities. Girls’ Education is important as this gives girls the tools to self-advocate and find power in their voices to chart a path that they choose for themselves, rather than the one forced upon them.
