Raise money for education.
Change the world.
More than 773 million adults - two-thirds of whom are women - still lack basic reading and writing skills. You have the power to change that.
It all starts with an idea. Our supporters have dedicated birthdays and weddings, climbed mountains, sold lemonade and more, all in the name of education.

You can turn anything into a fundraiser. Here’s how others have raised money to support education.
In lieu of wedding gifts, Maya and Vivek asked their guests to give the gift of education, keeping nearly 100 girls in India in school.
Marie dropped her laptop for a day and hopped on a bike with fellow Techbikers. A mere 960km later they raised £62,000 for global literacy!
Renée, Gabe, Thuy and Vatsal did the unthinkable and drove motorized rickshaws across India, fueling over $13,000 for students in Asia and Africa!
$300 can help a girl stay in school for one year
$2,500 can help 50 children learn to read and write for one year
$7,000 can provide a library full of local language books
“All children have the inherent right to a quality education.”
These projects represent many of the programs, projects, resources and tools that compose Room to Read’s work every day throughout Asia and Africa. Your gift will be used where and when most needed, allowing us to deliver a comprehensive and holistic approach to education. Your gift, combined with those of other donors, is a powerful means to provide the skills and confidence young students need to escape poverty and build brighter futures for themselves, their families, and their communities.
