A respected national charity, we are committed to helping kids believe in themselves and the potential to shape their own futures, empowering them to become thoughtful, creative and resilient enough to bounce back when life lets them down.

Sometimes all a child wants is to see their mommy or daddy's face and give them a hug. Now they can. Hug-A-Hero dolls help children feel connected with their missing parent, whether it is for a few months, a year, or for a lifetime.
The Hug-A-Hero doll is the original Daddy Doll®, made with high-quality, child-safe materials, and is incredibly durable and washable so it can survive many deployments.

REWARD CODE: RMTWRD
Use the reward code above to make a donation to Room to Read.
World Change Starts with Educated Children®
There are currently 793 million illiterate people in the world today, two-thirds of whom are women and girls.
That is one in five adults on the planet who lack the ability to read or write — every medicine bottle, ballot form and employment ad they encounter is awash with indecipherable symbols.
Without literacy, many children in developing countries are trapped in the same difficult circumstances they were born into. If every one of those children were to receive a primary education, 171 million people would be lifted from poverty.
Room to Read seeks to transform the lives of millions of children in developing countries by focusing on literacy and gender equality in education. Working in collaboration with local communities, partner organizations and governments, we develop literacy skills and a habit of reading among primary school children, and support girls to complete secondary school with the relevant life skills to succeed in school and beyond.
Currently operating in ten countries — Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Laos, Nepal, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Vietnam and Zambia — Room to Read is on track to improve the lives of 10 million children by the year 2015.
Commencing 2012, Hilton Worldwide will become the exclusive hotel industry partner of Room to Read. This partnership will bring Hilton Worldwide's corporate responsibility strategy, Travel with Purpose, to life by creating opportunities for young people in India through a holistic education and library program. As a partner of Room to Read, Hilton Worldwide will start with a program in Delhi, India, to help fund girls' education, offset book publishing costs in the local language and build ten school libraries.Learn more at roomtoread.org >

Children suffer the most as a result of poverty, disasters and injustice. As a relief, development and advocacy organization, we work to ensure that children in need around the world are safe and cared for, that their rights are protected — and most important, that they live in an environment where they can reach their full potential.
