Reading International Solidarity Centre (RISC) is a Development Education Centre close to the heart of Reading's town centre. We work with schools and community groups to raise the profile of global issues and promote action for sustainable development, human rights and social justice.

Our inspiration is summed up by Elvira Alvarado, a Honduran woman working with local communities to secure their rights to land, food, education and health care:

We are not asking for food or clothing or money
We want you with us in the struggle
We want you to educate your people
We want you to organise your people
We want you to join our struggle
Don't be afraid, gringos
Keep your spirits high 
And remember
We're right there with you!
