One for One - Our Partnership with Room to Read
Posted on 23 January 2018
A LETTER FROM OUR FOUNDER
When Girls Stay in School, Life Improves...for Everyone.
My long-standing commitment to empowering women began during my first career as a teacher. Witnessing the transformational power education had on my students empowered me. The experience ultimately led me to start MISCHA and to help others follow their dreams. For me, learning is a lifelong goal and this belief has led to our partnership: each MISCHA sold online funds one day of school with Room to Read.
Through Room to Read’s Girls’ Education Program, each day of school goes far beyond textbooks and classrooms—the girls receive mentorship, life skills coaching and engagement with her family to enable a bright and sustainable future.
With your MISCHA purchases, you help impact her future. Whether or not a girl stays in school has an astounding effect on not only her quality of life but on her future family’s as well. For a girl in one the most underserved parts of the world, staying in school longer means she is more likely to build a smaller and healthier family and earn a higher wage. She is also more likely to marry later and educate her own children — ending the cycle of illiteracy in one generation.
With our partnership, our goal is to fund 10,000 days of school in our first year. A heartfelt thank you for helping us continue this virtuous cycle.
