READ Global has been working for not only increasing the awareness but for a great revolution too. Actually, I am one of the social workers who indirectly play the role for the positive changes in the society. Previously, I have facilitated for specially the rural areas and motivated to do so due to my rural background too. There are very few of the organizations working in this sector in rural areas. The past achievements of READ Global are obviously inspirable. The number of people involved and benefited is the facts behind this. I have heard much more about Antonia Neubauer, the founder of READ Global, but unluckily I have never got a chance to meet. I have been visited in the library in Kathmandu, Nepal. Once again I want to emphasize that I belong from a rural community and that's why I have the passion for literacy. I have completed my masters in Chemistry. The passion in me is still alive and my whole life will be for the social service. I am myself affiliated with many social organizations and doing/done few of the significant services. In spite I am not satisfied with these achievements and willing to do much more than that.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Kathmandu when I visited the libraries.

I support Read Global because I am a retired librarian and have been inspired by what Toni Neubauer has done first in Nepal and now in India. It is an idea whose time has come and it is doing marvelous things for people in villages in these countries. I have served from the beginning on the board and now am an emeritus trustee. These libraries have done much for the people and Toni's insistence that they have a sustaining project that will support the libraries is brilliant. The people in the village then have a base of support and READ can go on to build more libraries.

A friend had been trying to persuade me to join him on the board of READ. I wasn't interested. Finally, he managed to seat me at a dinner next to Toni Neubauer, READ's amazing founder. By the time dinner was over, I was sold. I joined the board soon thereafter and became a donor as well. That was more than three years ago. Since then, I've had the opportunity to learn first-hand about READ's extraordinary work in Nepal, and about our new and fast-growing program in India. I've been thrilled by the major support READ has received from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. I've visited three READ libraries in Nepal -- and learned to my surprise how much more than libraries these institutions really are. To call them "libraries" doesn't get across the reality that these are active, vibrant community centers offering women's health programs, access to the Internet, training in local business, microcredit programs, and a whole lot more. I'm excited to be part of READ's new effort to expand from Nepal and India into four additional countries within three years. We need lots of help to accomplish that.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

both Nepal and India, and I couldn't be more impressed. READ has pioneered a replicable model of sustainable rural development unlike any other I've seen in many years of observing development programs around the world.
