Niyati Mehta is raising money for Room to Read
Event dates: 23rd February 2015 – 23rd April 2015
I have loved reading every since I was asked to read "Little Women" for homework in 3rd grade. I was assigned 10 pages but ended up reading the whole book in one sitting. This sparked a life-long love affiar with books - a passion that I hope to pass on to Nikit (and one that I like to imagine he already has when I see him enjoying his many picture books). I can't imagine not being able to read, but unfortunately this is a reality for millions of children worldwide. Nihar and I would like to do our part in helping those who work so hard to tackle this issue. So for Nikit's first birthday, instead of buying him a present, please consider donating to Room to Read, a charity that focuses on literacy and gender equality in education.
"Over 60 million primary school-aged children around the world do not have access to education and most likely will never learn to read or write. Room to Read believes that all children, regardless of gender or background, have a right to education. By empowering children through this lifelong gift, we see a world in which people are able to realize their full potential." (http://www.roomtoread.org/Welcome)
