Review for Room To Read, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Living close to Asia I am aware of the many problems facing education in the widely diverse regions. Over many years, I have liked the way that Room to Read has adapted to new ideas, learnt from prior mistakes and, in particular, centred the ownership of the local language book publishing and library and school construction on the local communities. Educating the young to learn about the world with the added advantage of incorporating their own languages and perspectives adds to a richer learning experience which benefits not only the local culture but contributes to the world's uniqueness and diversity.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
