A snapshot of Gloria Steinem at a Life Skills Workshop at Kacheta Basic School in Zambia. She worked with some of our 38,000 girls supported by the program, ensuring that they have access to the resources & mentors that they need to be successful. Thank you for being one of them, Gloria!
Ayesha (left) was almost forced to drop out of school and marry before her 16th birthday, but gifts from supporters of Room to Read just like you ensured that she graduated from secondary school. Do you want to make sure girls like Ayesha and her sister go back to school and stay out of early marriages? Give through September 30th and your donation will be matched by Burger King McLamore Foundation (up to $100,000)! www.roomtoread.org/backtoschool
