Room to Read – We first met John Wood, Founder & CEO of Room to Read and former Microsoft marketing executive, through R/L alumni, Art Miller. R│L embraced the practice that Room to Read partners with local communities to provide learning and developmental opportunities to children in developing nations. This includes establishing libraries, creating local language literature, constructing schools, providing education to children, and establishing computer labs. By seeking to intervene early in the lives of children, education empowers them to improve socioeconomic conditions for their families, communities, countries, and future generations. Through the opportunities that only education can provide, R│L joins Room to Read in striving to break the cycle of poverty, one child at a time.
