One of my favorite organizations, Room to Read, FINALLY has a DC chapter up and running! Maybe now I can go to some of the fabulous events they have!!!
Don't know Room to Read? Briefly....
We partner with local communities throughout the developing world to provide quality educational opportunities by establishing libraries, creating local language children's literature, constructing schools, and providing education to girls. We seek to intervene early in the lives of children in the belief that education empowers people to improve socioeconomic conditions for their families, communities, countries and future generations. Through the opportunities that only education can provide, we strive to break the cycle of poverty, one child at a time.
What's not to love about that?
Who wants to volunteer with me???
