The Story Behind Room to Read’s New Website

October 03, 2016

Community Publication & Reports

Room to Read is a global community. We are investors, volunteers, advocates and staff committed to the belief that World Change Starts with Educated Children.® Our website,, serves as a central hub where we are able to connect and share stories from the communities we serve  and highlight and celebrate the global network of supporters who help us achieve our ambitious goals. We are all connected through our commitment to the causes of literacy and gender equality in education and together we can scale faster to impact more children. Because of this, we are excited today to re-launch with new design and functionality.

“Our website now has a bold new look and a clean interface that works beautifully across devices to give you a better experience engaging with our mission and stories.” Rebecca Hankin Vice President of Marketing & Communications

 Our website now has a bold new look and a clean interface that works beautifully across devices to give you a better experience engaging with our mission and stories - whether it be from your laptop, desktop, tablet or phone. 

An all-new Literacy & Girls’ Education section draws attention to the challenges children and girls face around the world, along with our data-backed approach to solving those issues. Our Impact & Reach center includes interactive maps so visitors can explore our global reach as well as a results dashboard that highlights our impact. Our dynamic and engaging Take Action section provides visitors with inspiring ways to get involved and connect with other like-minded people through our far-reaching volunteer network. New content sharing features throughout the site allow you to quickly share our content with your network, and a streamlined donation system makes it simple to make one-time and monthly donations in several currencies with relevant tax benefits.

Browsing the new, I can’t help but smile and appreciate the amazing work that we do within the communities we serve and I encourage you to explore it further: dive in to the beautiful photography, enrich your understanding of our programs and results through informative content and interactive maps, and be inspired to share it with your friends.

Our website is an important window to our work, and we are committed to ensuring it continues to motivate you and our entire global community, so we can together reach our goals of educating more children. Thank you for sharing this significant moment in our evolution with us!
