At eNotes, we believe reading is fun and transformative.
Reading is crucial to an ethical, thoughtful, and just society, and we want to do our part to empower students and teachers to change the world for the better. We believe being the Literature Experts means sharing our knowledge and resources to make education more accessible.
To further this mission, we’ve partnered with Room to Read—a global nonprofit transforming the lives of millions of children in low-income communities by focusing on literacy and gender equality in education.
Founded in 2000 on the belief that World Change Starts with Educated Children®, Room to Read’s innovative model focuses on deep, systemic transformation within schools during the two most critical time periods in a child’s schooling: early primary school for literacy acquisition and secondary school for girls’ education.
Room to Read works in collaboration with local communities, partner organizations, and governments to develop literacy skills and a habit of reading among primary school children. Room to Read also works to ensure girls can complete secondary school with the skills necessary to negotiate key life decisions. By focusing on the quality of education provided within the communities and ensuring these outcomes are measured, they have created a model that can be replicated, localized, and sustained by local governments.
To date, Room to Read has benefited 16.8 million children across over 34,000 communities in Bangladesh, Cambodia, Grenada, Honduras, India, Indonesia, Jordan, Laos, Myanmar, Nepal, Rwanda, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Vietnam, and Zambia.
We’re excited to partner with this incredible organization to help transform the lives of children by supporting their work. For each new eNotes subscriber, we donate $1 to their literacy initiative, up to $20,000 per annum.
