In June of this year, Hyatt launched Ready to Thrive, the company’s new corporate philanthropy program focused on education - one of the four pillars of Hyatt Thrive. Through Ready to Thrive, Hyatt is investing corporate dollars in two specific areas – literacy and career development, both of which are vital to the long-term viability of our communities and our business.
To help support our effort, Hyatt is partnering with Room to Read, a global leader in education. The organization works with local communities, nonprofits and governments to develop the literacy skills and reading habits among primary school children. With an initial investment in India, Hyatt’s $100,000 pledge will help Room to Read build 10 libraries and fund literacy instruction programs in 23 schools - impacting the lives of more than 4,000 children and their families.
