ABOUT ‘ROOM to READ’
Room to Read believes that World Change Starts with Educated Children. We envision a world in which all children can pursue a quality education that enables them to reach their full potential and contribute to their community and the world.
Room to Read seeks to transform the lives of millions of children in developing countries by focusing on literacy and gender equality in education. Working in collaboration with local communities, partner organizations and governments, we develop literacy skills and a habit of reading among primary school children, and support girls to complete secondary school with the relevant life skills to succeed in school and beyond.
Room to Read is a fantastic charity, they are financially transparent and have excellent relations within the communities they work with. For more information, please visit their website at www.roomtoread.org.
We’re so grateful for every donation, they really will make a difference to the children supported by Room to Read.
We will be visiting ‘Room to Read’ projects along our route and will be sure to keep you posted on how your money is being spent.
Finally, when our arses get sore, and those hills look insurmountable we’re hoping that the thought of the £/$/E’s promised to us for every little mile will help keep those thighs pounding on.
Disclaimer! If the political situation in Pakistan becomes unstable, for the sake of our safety (and our mother’s blood pressure) we ‘reserve the right’ to alter our route which may even include a short flight. We really hope this doesn’t happen but trust you’ll understand if it does!
