Join us for the 2024 Room to Read Readathon to support the development of literacy and girls’ education.
A readathon is an excellent way to promote the pleasure of reading whilst raising money to support the development of literacy around the world. All the resources you need to organise and promote the readathon can be found on the ASIBA website ASIBA – Readathon and can be adapted to your own school and timeframes. Let us know how much your students raise so we can celebrate the international engagement of the ASIBA community together.
Room to Read is a global organization that seeks to transform the lives of millions of children in the developing world by focusing on literacy and gender equality in education. Founded on the belief that World Change Starts with Educated Children, Room to Read works in collaboration with local communities, partner organizations and governments to develop literacy skills and reading among primary school children and to ensure girls have the life skills and support needed to complete their secondary education. Room to Read has benefitted more than 11.5 million children and their communities in Asia and African, and hopes to invest in the futures of at least 40 million children by 2025.
