Since 1991, in 45 villages all across Nepal, READ Global, begun by Myths and Mountains, Inc., has built a library/community center and a business. READ capital goes to construct and stock the library and seed the business (ambulance service, furniture factory, storefront rental, computer center, etc.). The profits from the business fully sustain and support the library and help with other community needs - eg. pre-schools, scholarships, the Red Cross, etc. The first READ library in India will be dedicated in June 2008, and READ will expand into four more countries by 2010.
