Take a peek at a sample from our April Report to see just how much more children can acheive with quality instruction.
Across nearly all Room to Read countries, the Reading & Writing Instruction program (RWI) is having an incredible impact on children’s literacy skills. We compared our RWI program to other similar programs using international standards for assessing program effectiveness. The average impact of our RWI program is nearly 10 times greater than the average impact of 70 other similarly-focused literacy interventions. In Bangladesh, Laos, Nepal, Sri Lanka, and Zambia, Room to Read's RWI program’s impact exceeds even the most impactful of these 70 other literacy interventions. This comparison suggests that the RWI program is one of the most effective ways of improving children’s learning in primary schools in developing countries.
