Members of the Changescape team are actively involved in the Room to Read St. Louis Chapter. We love the social entrepreneur model that they have created and the efficiency and effectiveness that they achieve. They get "stuff" done!
Changescape provides the online marketing support for our chapter, and well as fundraising events. 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 has four core programs that provide educational resources to communities throughout the developing world:
Reading Room Program – We establish libraries and stock them with local-language children’s books, original Room to Read titles, donated English-language books, games and furniture to create a child-friendly learning environment.
Local Language Publishing Program – We source new content from local writers and illustrators and publish high-quality children's books in the local language to distribute throughout our networks.
School Room Program – We partner with local communities to build schools so children can learn in a safe, child-friendly environment.
Girl's Education Program – We provide long-term, holistic support enabling girls to pursue and complete their secondary education.
