Room To Read is an organization, which "partners with local communities throughout the developing world to establish schools, libraries, and other educational infrastructure. We seek to intervene early in the lives of children in the belief that education is a lifelong gift that empowers people to ultimately improve socioeconomic conditions for their families, communities, countries, and future generations. Through the opportunities that only an education can provide, we strive to break the cycle of poverty, one child at a time."
Founder and CEO John Wood and the entire RTR staff welcomes Dhir Jhingran.
"Dhir Jhingran joins us in the newly created role of Asia Regional Director. Dhir is a prominent leader and facilitator of educational programs at local, state and national levels in India. With over 15 years of professional experience in primary education, Dhir most recently served as Director of Elementary Education for the Ministry of Human Resource Development, responsible for guiding and supervising the implementation of the Education For All program, a national campaign to universalize elementary education in India. He has supervised programs in reading comprehension, computer education, classroom construction and language development, and is the author of two books that focus on the access of education for disadvantaged children. He served as an informal advisor to the Room to Read India team for two years before joining us in his current role as Asia Regional Director, with all country teams in Asia reporting up to him. We are excited to build out a larger regional team based in Delhi with Dhir."
