Room to Grow has an immediate and direct influence on the lives of thousands of girls in the developing world. An education provides security and support to girls and enables them to make informed life decisions. In addition, a solid education is critical to improve the status of women, which provides a ripple of positive effects throughout society. Room to Read makes a long term commitment to each girl on the program: as long as she attends classes and participates in Room to Grow activities, we will continue to fund her education through the completion of secondary school. This promise provides an incentive for her to do well in school and for the family to support her in her academic endeavors. Currently, the majority of our scholarship students range in age from 7 to 12. A ten year scholarship costs around £1,500.
