Building Libraries Around the World

“We do three things: We build schools. We establish multilingual libraries and fill them with thousands of books. And we provide long term scholarships for girls because girls are often left out of the education system. Basically, we’re a group that is committed to reaching 10 million kids across the world with the life-long gift of education. In education lies the key to self sufficiency–and the best long term ticket out of poverty.”
-John Wood, Founder & CEO, Room to Read-
