FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich., March 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Mango Languages today announced it will be donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of its new language learning product, Mango Passport®, to the Room to Read Foundation in order to assist the organization with its mission of developing literacy skills among primary school children throughout the world. For each Mango Passport® course sold, Mango Languages will donate $1 to the Foundation. Beverly Cornell, director of marketing for Mango, made the announcement.

The Room to Read Foundation was established on the belief that world change starts with educated children. The nonprofit organization seeks to transform the lives of children in developing countries by focusing on literacy in education and envisions a world in which all children can pursue a quality education that enables them to reach their full potential. Since its founding in 2000, Room to Read has positively impacted more than four million children. The organization hopes to improve literacy for ten million children by 2015.

Because the inspiration behind Mango Languages is education, the Room to Read Foundation was deemed a perfect fit for the company's commitment to giving back to the community. Its Mango Passport® product goes beyond teaching grammar, vocabulary and conjugation to provide engaging content, intuitive interactive tools and a comprehensive learning methodology.

"We are grateful to Mango Languages for their generous support of our group and mission," said John Wood, founder and chief executive officer of Room to Read. "We are committed to helping children across the developing world to gain the lifelong gift of education and it only with assistance from companies like Mango Languages that we will be able to achieve our goal."

Room to Read is a global organization seeking to transform the lives of millions of children in the developing world by focusing on literacy and gender equality in education. Since 2000, Room to Read has impacted the lives of more than four million children in Asia and Africa and aims to reach ten million children by 2015. Learn more at
