Project name: Joy in Giving for Room to Read
Project goal: Build a school in Nepal and help children realize their potential by empowering them with the gift of education
Room to Read's mission: Room to Read partners with local communities throughout the developing world to establish schools, libraries, and other educational infrastructure. We seek to intervene early in the lives of children in the belief that education is a lifelong gift that empowers people to ultimately improve socioeconomic conditions for their families, communities, countries, and future generations. Through the opportunities that only an education can provide, we strive to break the cycle of poverty, one child at a time.
Forever altering the lives of the children of the world by providing them with an education is an essential and attainable goal. You can make the difference by donating towards this project - any amount of donation is highly appreciated. And thank you for sharing this page with your friends.

Nepal: A Girl's Life
- PBS Frontline World
It chronicles the life of Sabina Timilsina, a young Nepalese girl who was selected to be a Room to Grow scholar. The reporter follows Sabina through her daily life including visits to her home and school, illustrating in very tangible ways the life-changing impact Room to Read is having on hundreds of thousands of children around the world. It is incredibly touching to see Sabina, considered a part of the “untouchable” caste, read a Room to Read book late into the night and to hear her speak of becoming a doctor.
