International Women’s Day I Room to Read
“International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.”
At Alp-n-Rock we value women and want to make a contribution this International Women’s Day by donating $10 per item purchased over the week to Room to Read. It costs $300 to send one girl to school for a year in developing countries.
Our goal is to send 10 girls to school! We ask YOU to take action and help us to achieve this goal.
“Many world problems can be address through one solution: Education.Why? Because knowing how to read makes people safer, healthier and more self-sufficient — yet nearly 800 million people are illiterate and two thirds are women and girls.” Room to Read helps support girls in a journey to a brighter future by providing change – in the community, in schools, and at home.
