As regular listeners may know Kel and Pam are both proud advocates for Room To Read and in Season 1 Episode 22 we chatted to RTR Writer Ambassador Susanne Gervay about the 2018 World Change Challenge.
Originally conceived by author Tristan Bancks in 2012, the Challenge aims to raise funds to help build libraries, support girl’s education and aid literacy programs in developing countries.
This year, with so much talk about equality for women, the time is right to focus on Room to Read’s Girls’ Education Program which empowers girls through education and helps them navigate life’s tough decisions.
It costs just $365 for Room to Read to support a girl through the Girls’ Education Program for a year.
To achieve the goals of the World Change Challenge we need 50 schools to support 50 girls for a year. This brief RtR blog will help you understand the key milestones achieved since this program launched in Nepal in2001. So far more than 50,000 girls have benefited.

If you have a child at school why not ask your school community to take part in the challenge and help educate 50 girls for a year?
You can find ideas for fundraising here on Tristan’s blog.
