Reliance Life Insurance Partners with Room To Read, to set up over 100 libraries and reach out to over 10,000 children across the country
Reliance Life Insurance Company (RLIC), part of Reliance Capital Limited has entered into partnership with Room to Read to set up libraries across schools in India.
Room to Read is a global non profit organization committed to promoting literacy and gender equality in education in the country by providing libraries in schools.
The partnership between RLIC and Room to Read aims to set up over 100 libraries in government primary schools and reach out to over 10,000 children across the country through this CSR initiative.
Reliance Life Insurance and Room to Read will create and maintain libraries in Municipal Corporation Schools across Rajasthan, Uttarakhand, Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra in the first year of their programme.
Reading is fundamental to success in life and it is Room to Read's mission to ensure that every child develops the habit and skill of reading, thus ensuring children become life-long readers.
The partnership, which is part of Reliance Life Insurance's larger Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) endeavour, will support more schools with such libraries in the following years. Through this initiative, Reliance Life Insurance aims to compliment, support and strengthen the efforts of the government to improve the quality of education in India.
Established in 2003, Room to Read India currently has presence in nine states and has set up more than 6,421 school libraries across India.
