Pearson and Booktrust have announced the 2011 titles for Booktime, a reading program that provides free books for British children entering school. This fall, each of 690,000 schoolchildren will receive two free copies of Tinga Tinga Tales and Face Painting from Pearson UK, its first donation of books. Booktime, a program run by the independent charity Booktrust, is now in its sixth year and has given away five million free books.

RSF Social Finance has been named one of the 2011 ImpactAssets 50, a global database of leading private debt and equity fund managers that deliver social and environmental value in addition to financial returns. The managers represent $8.9 billion dollars of capital invested across multiple asset classes, geographies, and impact areas. RSF Social Finance, a non-profit financial services organization, has made over $230 million in loans and over $100 million in grants since 1984.
