Alp N Rock began with a mission to send girls in need to school and create lasting change through the gift of an education. After meeting the founder of Room to Read, Alp N Rock CEO Susanne Reich knew she wanted to contribute in a meaningful way - and she had a big goal in mind. With up to 10% of profits benefiting the Room to Read Girls Scholarship Program, Alp N Rock and its customers are helping contribute to our first milestone of sending 1,000 girls to school.
In honor of International Women's Day, we are pledging 10% of all sales received from March 6-8, 2020, to the Room to Read Organization.
“We envision a world in which all children can pursue a quality education that enables them to reach their full potential and contribute to their communities and the world.”
Why it Matters
“For a girl in one of the most underserved parts of the world, staying in school longer means she is more likely to build a smaller and healthier family, lower her probability of contracting HIV, and earn a higher wage. She is also more likely to marry later and educate her own children — ending the cycle of illiteracy in one generation.” –Room to Read
World change starts with educated children. Every dollar that goes to Room to Read Girls’ Education Program means more schools are built, more books are read, more skilled teachers are hired. In turn, the foundation of each community becomes stronger as they become more involved and connected through education.
Since day one, Alp N Rock has donated up to 10% of profits to the Room to Read foundation. That means every purchase makes a positive impact!
