Nepal Room to Read

Room to Read's work in Nepal began before Room to Read even came to exist. In 1998, Room to Read Founder, John Wood, delivered his first few hundred books to a school high in the Himalayas, and the organization—then known as Books for Nepal—was born. Since then, the local team has expanded operations in the country to include all of our core programs—School Libraries, Reading & Writing Instruction, School Construction, Book Publishing and Girls’ Education. Room to Read now works in both the Himalayan region and the lowlying Tarai flatlands to improve educational opportunities for Nepal's children.
