    Namaste World! is a global yoga benefit to raise funds for Room to Read Girls' Education Program. In 2012, Room to Read held its first global yoga benefit called Namaste India! to raise funds for the Room to Read Girls' Education Program in India. During one 24 hour period, more than 100 yoga teachers and studios participated on six continents, raising enough money to send 160 girls to school in India. Much like yoga itself, this global yoga benefit has developed a large following, and in 2013 it will now support girls' education in all of the countries where Room to Read works. Room to Read is a global charity that focuses on literacy and gender equality in education. The charity has established over 15,000 libraries and constructed 1,677 schools.
