Room to Read, Nepal

Room to Read is a fantastic Charity initiative which is helping to change the world through education of children in third world countries.

The program runs in various districts and towns throughout Nepal and since 1998 has been changing the way people view education. Through sponsorship, scholarships, educational facilities and helpful teachers, children are now gaining the valuable knowledge to help them change their future.

Education is vital to the progression and development of countries such as Nepal. Educational and literacy programs are opening doors for these young people and giving them opportunities they may never have dreamed of.

The team at Room to Read are particularly concious of cultural differences and practices and they work hard to understand the best methods of implementation for each region. The organisations states ‘our team on the ground decides what programs Room to Read will focus on there, as they know the communities needs the best. They only work with villages that seek us as we want to know that they are committed enough to be proactive.’

After being contacted by the organisation directly, I will be lucky enough to experience this program first hand when I visit on the 10th December 2009. I hope to learn more about the efforts in Nepal and ways in which the group can be helped.
