Room To Read.
Our Vision Room to Read believes that World Change Starts with Educated Children. 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 community and the world. Our Mission Room to Read seeks to transform the lives of millions of children in developing countries by focusing on literacy and gender equality in education. Working in collaboration with local communities, partner organisations and governments, we develop literacy skills and a habit of reading among primary school children, and support girls to complete secondary school with the relevant life skills to succeed in school and beyond.

Please note Virgin Money Giving isn't responsible for the content fundraisers post on their pages, but if you see something you feel is offensive or inappropriate, please let us know and we'll look into it.

My page:

Hi I’m Fraser, thanks for visiting my page.

Help share the gift of literacy.

I'm raising money for Room to Read as I cycle around the world with the aim of helping to build a new school in Africa or Asia.

Education is widely accepted as the most effective way to change the cycle of poverty. Educated children grow up equipped with the skills necessary to work and fully contribute to their communities. In turn they have smaller families and pass on the gift of education to their children, changing the cycle of poverty into one of opportunity and prosperity.

Please help me raise money by donating today and help change the future of the thousands of children that will pass through the school your donation will help to build. 

All Donations will receive a copy of my book:

Cyclehacking: Do. Learn. Evolve

An Unconventional Guide To Being Human

**When you make a donation you will receive a confirmation email from Virgin, half way down that email is a message from me which contains the link to the download page for the book.**

Thank you for your support.

Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
