Abstract/Notes "JUST THINK WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF A COUPLE HUNDRED PEOPLE FOLLOWED HIS EXAMPLE." -PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON
A STORY OF HOPE IN THE BATTLE FOR GLOBAL LITERACY
IN TODAY'S WORLD 780 MILLION PEOPLE CAN'T READ
1 out of 8 people on this earth. Here is the inspiring story of one man who has made it his mission to put books within reach of every child on the planet. In a world in desperate need for change, this book gives the reader a front-row seat to what life would look like if one's dreams succeeded beyond their wildest hopes.
In 1999, John Wood left a lucrative career at Microsoft to found Room to Read, the lauded nonprofit that promotes education across the developing world and which quickly became one of the most successful international literacy organizations in the world. Today, more than seven million children in ten countries across the developing world benefit from books, libraries, and schools thanks to Room to Read. Those students' .stories are the true heart of this book—children in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos whose educational systems are still suffering the after effects of war; the Sri Lankan students whose schools and villages were swept away in the tsunami; the Nepali children who had no books in the language they speak until Room to Read took on the additional challenge of publishing books in more than twenty languages. He also describes learning a few of his lessons the hard way and how to be resilient in the face of huge challenges, such as expanding into Africa and raising money during a global recession.
As a business model, as a blueprint for doing good the right way, in partnership with the people being served, and as a narrative of pure inspiration with a special message for everyone who loves books, Creating Room to Read is a one of a kind story.
