Women Participants


In 2014, we reached out to Accenture to present our unique model and invite their team to check out a center in action.

Center Inauguration


After capping off 2015 with the launch of new READ Centers in India and Bhutan, and with the upcoming inauguration of two more READ Nepal centers in the pipeline – 2016 is already shaping up to be a truly standout year for READ Global.


International Peace Day


Happy International Peace Day!

In all three countries that READ Global works in, peacebuilding has footprints in many forms – such as a vibrant vision for Peace, Prosperity, and Happiness in Bhutan, enacting a comprehensive peace agreement ending internal conflict in Nepal, or transformation to becoming a leader in peacebuilding in India.
