Room to Read: One Year On
Annual Review 2017-2018
We have continued our partnership with Room to Read, a global charity that promotes and enables learning through programmes focused on literacy and gender equality in education. In the past year, we donated more than EUR 200,000
to the charity. As part of our fundraising efforts, we swapped books, baked cakes, ran, cycled, scored goals, skied and participated in many other activities, supporting more than 1,200 children to learn to read and write. CMS believes that quality of life, health and economic opportunity all depend on education, of which literacy forms a key part.
Room to Read has benefited 10 million children across 18,000 communities in Asia and Africa. The organisation aims to reach 15 million children by 2020. CMS globally – through donations, active support and raising awareness – is helping Room to Read achieve this goal.
