John Wood gave up a high powered job with Microsoft to devote his life to building schools and libraries for children in the developing world. It began in Nepal where he witnessed the impoverished village facilities while on a trekking holiday. A year later, he returned to the same village with 3000 books carried by a train of mules and shortly afterwards he abandoned his career and lifestyle to set up the charity, Room to Read, an organisation that now provides education and particularly scholarships for girls in several countries.
