Clean, bright, and well-constructed classrooms have a measurable impact on student achievement. Yet in developing countries, having enough classrooms of any kind is a daunting task.

Sri Lanka's infrastructure is additionally challenged by decades of civil war, but happily, the government of Sri Lanka has identified school construction and teacher training as a high priority. In 2009, at the request of the government, Room to Read joined forces with the Ministry of Education to help rebuild educational infrastructure in the heavily-impacted northern province of Mannar.

Room to Read's School Room program partners with communities to build new schools, replace dilapidated structures, or expand schools to alleviate overcrowded classrooms. Most of Room to Read's schools also include a Room to Read library so that students have access to books and materials that encourage literacy.

Now you can help this good work move forward strongly. Here are examples of what your donation through this Gift That Gives More™ supports:

  • A Foundation for Learning: $33 can contribute toward the construction of a school. Children need safe environments in which to learn.
  • Erasing Illiteracy: $50 can buy a blackboard for a classroom, helping to properly equip teachers.
  • Furnishing the Future: $100 can purchase desks and chairs for a newly constructed or rehabilitated classroom.

Since beginning work in Sri Lanka in response to the 2004 tsunami, Room to Read has constructed 228 schools.
