Children at Aghapur


On September 25, READ India opened its 10th Center in India and its first in the state of Uttar Pradesh. Three-quarters of the state’s population lives in rural areas, and 33% of its rural residents are illiterate. The Aghapur READ Center will provide 11,500 villagers with access to essential educational resources, including a library, computers, and children’s section. The inauguration was celebrated with much fanfare, with over 300 villagers in attendance. Congratulations to our READ India team on expanding their reach in a new state!
