The READ organization is focused on removing the barriers that keep people from getting an education in rural areas of Cotopaxi, Ecuador. Their goal is to provide the educational resources necessary – so that teachers are empowered to teach and that students with a desire to learn, can do so… ultimately creating a lasting impact on the community through supporting education.

A daunting task, when family priorities are often consumed with the very important, daily goal of getting food on the table – but the READ organization is making waves… and lives and communities are changing.

Recently READ completed the construction of a regional library in rural Cotopaxi, serving a surrounding community of approximately 6,000. Imagine a building filled with books, computers… a place to learn! Imagine the possibility! I was so honored to be a part of it all!
