I’m delighted to share this fantastic article written by Nick Kristof in The New York Times about ‘Room To Read’:
‘This Smart Girl Says Thank You’
John Wood, Founder of ‘Room to Read’ also has this to say:
“I am thrilled to announce that the paperback version of ‘Creating Room to Read: A Story of Hope in the Battle for Global Literacy’ has been released by Penguin. ”

‘World Change Starts with Educated Children’
Great piece Susan, Having just read Inside the Kingdom (we were supposed to go to Saudi to give a talk but it was cancelled) I was struck by this paragraph which put s a ton in perspective.
It puzzles me in my travels that the donors who invest most in education are fundamentalist Wahhabi Muslims from Saudi Arabia. Often in Africa and Asia, I see madrassas that they have established to inculcate reactionary attitudes, because they understand that education is the best tool kit to change societies.
We don’t even compete.
