This year we will be fundraising to refurbish 2 libraries in Vietnam, a total cost of $20,000! This will include books, puzzles, and a child friendly learning environment. Click here to learn more about this project.
In 2015, children with access to Room to Read libraries checked out more than 7.8 million books, an average of 9.5 books per student! Quite a large improvement from 3 books per student in 2009.
Room to Read also provides education for the local teachers and librarians, on how to run a library and allow children to take the books home. Bal Munday, of Raven Supply, said that on her Room to Read trip to India, the librarians cared so much about their books they would go to the students house to collect them if they weren’t returned on time.
We are looking forward to another successful year of fundraising!
Thank you for your support!
