Atlassian foundation + Room to Read
"I am so happy that I can read and write well. Room to Read’s teachers taught me how to interact with others, how to be friendly and how if I am educated, I can earn money on my own in the future."
Girls' Education Program participant from Sri Lanka
Room to Read’s Literacy Program
Room to Read collaborated with Atlassian Foundation on a pilot for reading and writing instruction in Cambodia. This program is now a critical element of Room to Read’s Literacy Program and has been implemented across all Room to Read program countries.
Girls’ Education Program
The Foundation collaborates with Room to Read to assist girls’ transition into and through secondary school through the Girls’ Education Program. This is a holistic program which addresses the complex factors leading to high rates of drop-out among girls. It:
- provides girls with life skills education, mentorship, and material support
- engages with governments, schools, communities and families to promote girl-friendly learning environments.
As part of this collaboration, Atlassian Foundation matches donations from Atlassian employees through its workplace giving program.
