Room to Read works to ensure that primary school students can become independent readers and can develop literacy skills in low income areas. Their main goal is to have structured libraries with books in the local language, as well as teachers and librarians who have been trained in the best practices of reading and writing instruction to ensure that children grow up learning how to read and write to make sure they can succeed later in life. They are present in 10 countries across Asia and Africa. They have distributed over 26 million books, and have trained 15,000 teachers.
