Room to Read believes that changing the world starts with educating children, and PAPP International is honored to be a part of its mission by providing 30,000 books destined for schoolchildren around the world.
Room to Read is working to create long-term, systemic transformation within elementary schools in developing countries through literacy and gender equality in education.
Enabling girls and women alike to reach their potential through education, Room to Read is supporting a generation of young women and leaders who will go on to change their communities and impact the world around them for the better.
Changing the World One Page at a Time
PAPP International publishes over 500 titles each year. Our books are widely available throughout North America and in many other countries – in more than 14 languages. Even so, through Room to Read our books can potentially be put into the hands of children in countries we have never reached before, such as Nepal, India, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Zambia, Tanzania, and Rwanda. This latest shipment was sent to a school in the U.S. to give the students the opportunity to practice their literacy skills and share stories with their teachers and classmates.
