BBC News just published an amazing article on Room to Read, an NGO that builds libraries and schools and provides books to children in 10 countries around the world. It was started 15 years ago by former Microsoft executive John Wood, who quit his job after seeing the need on a trek through Nepal. In the last 15 years, Wood's organization has built 17,500 libraries and 1,000 schools. He has been compared to Andrew Carnegie, who built 2,500 spectacular libraries, including a few in Cleveland.
