There are so many ways to pay it forward and at Black Opal Direct we are passionate about children’s education.
Did you know there are over 300 million children today who are unable to attend school?
Imagine if every child was able to access resources to learn?
Room To Read is changing the landscape of literacy across Africa and Asia, they are funding libraries, building schools, producing storybooks and textbooks in local languages and most heartwarmingly, providing scholarships for girls.
Their work has reached almost 8 million kids in the past 10 years and counting.
Since 2010 we have been quietly raising money for Room to Read through donations and encouraging companies, friends and family to support its great work. In addition, this year, we have committed to building a library in Nepal.
We are committed to supporting this wonderful organisation and feel honoured to be in a position where we can help.
We will keep you updated here but in the meantime, if you would like to learn more about Room to Read or its founder, John Wood, and his book “Leaving Microsoft to Change the World” – watch the video and go here.
