WHO WE ARE
Reading Mile Foundation (“RMF”) is a registered charity* founded to create opportunities for underprivileged families to access high quality children books, and provide online and offline platforms that facilitate parents and teachers to help children to discover the pleasure of reading.
“Research often shows that becoming a lifelong reader relies on developing a deep love of reading at very young age. While knowledge evolves in time, literacy stays with children for life, enabling them to learn, think, communicate and inspire others. Our mission is to inspire children to read for pleasure, and empower them to read to inspire others. We envision a community where all children will love reading and have unlimited access to quality books, which allow them to be ready for the challenges ahead in their lives.”
