One World Book set
Rural Education and Development, Inc.
In Nepal, more that 55 percent of the population is illiterate. This figure is even higher among rural residents and women. READ Global has partnered with World Book International to supply each new self-supporting library community center in READ’s Nepal network with a set of encyclopedias to complement the 3,000 to 5,000 Nepali books stocked by READ. But it’s an expensive trip for each classic 22-volume set to travel to a rural Himalayan village.
Join READ Global in its quest to change the world—one country, one village, one individual at a time. Your contribution will ensure that World Book International’s contribution reaches a new library community center in a rural region of Nepal where it can transport children and adults into a world they’ve never experienced. Your gift of shipping a World Book Encyclopedia set to Nepal will be provided by READ Global.
