“Literacy unlocks the door to learning throughout life, is essential to development and health, and opens the way for democratic participation and active citizenship.” – Kofi Annan
In honor of International Literacy Day, we want to feature one of our favorite partners – Room to Read! Room to Read is an organization committed to the development of literacy skills among children, and gender equality in education. Operations in their program countries are run entirely by local staff, and have benefited more than ten million children to date. With help from our brand partners 2xu, Zwift, Qt2 and Every Man Jack, More Than Sport has provided more than 1500 books to Room to Read in the past year. We share the belief with Room to Read that world change starts with educated children.
