Review for READ (Rural Education and Development) Global, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

READ Bhutan focuses on empowerment of local and rural communities, especially targeted towards women and from then on wards to children and the community at large. Educating women is the best investment since this has a ripple effect starting from household to the whole community.  With READ Bhutan, rural communities has been empowered with knowledge and opportunities. Now a farmer in rural Bhutan know about better parenting, the value of sending children, especially girls to school, decision on family planning and other reproductive health issues, does business with a mobile phone and keep records of transactions, know the procedure of availing loans from the bank, and is aware of environmental issues. This farmer also contributes to our new democracy since he/she is empowered to think, analyse and select the best leader. READ Bhutan's impressive method of involving communities creates a sense of ownership and a sustainable way to keep the programme going on which is impressive.  Tandi
