John Wood, founder of Room to Read, visits Schuberg Philis

John Wood, founder and executive chairman of Room to Read, visited Schuberg Philis to receive a cheque for the foundation of four new libraries, one in Africa and three in India. John shared his inspiring story on how he quit his senior executive position with Microsoft and built a global team to work with rural villages to build sustainable solutions for their educational challenges. John Wood: “I want to thank Schuberg Philis for the support that they are providing once again to Room to Read. They are helping us to bring the lifelong gift of education to millions of children across the developing world Philip Dries, Director of Operations at Schuberg Philis: “When we got to know Room to Read we were immediately impressed by incredible passion, entrepreneurial spirit and businesslike approach. That enables them to give so many underprivileged children the chance to educate themselves and reach their full potential. Since then we have started a referral program: for each new hire we build up funding for Room to Read. John’s visit was an inspiration and strengthened our commitment in finding additional ways of raising funding and awareness for Room to Read.” About Room to Read Room to Read seeks to transform the lives of millions of children in the developing world by focusing on literacy and gender equality in education.
