Our site visits offer the unique opportunity to experience our work first hand and to directly engage in our mission of providing the life-long gift of education for millions of children throughout Asia and Africa. Group site visits are hosted by our local staff and are designed for independent travelers interested in seeing our work firsthand. Site visits are a half-day to a full-day in length and offer our guests an overview of the variety of programs we are implementing in these regions. Site visits may include a visit to a Room to Read school, library, or a short visit with participants in our Girls' Education program.
The cost to join a site visit is $25 USD. To register, please click on the date of the visit you would like to attend. If you are traveling with friends or family, please note that each participant needs to register independently.
Registration forms will be accepted up to six weeks in advance of the site visit date. Space is limited and participation is based on a first come, first served basis. Six weeks prior to the site visit, registration will be closed and you will no longer be able to click through to the registration page for that visit.
Please note that these site visits are not designed for student groups or young children. To learn more, please refer to Frequent Questions-Site Visits.

Site Visits for Local Nationals
If you are a local national you may attend a site visit in your country for free. Please email email@example.com to register at least six weeks in advance of the site visit date in order to allow our local staff to plan appropriately.
In order to qualify for local national status for a site visit, you must show proof of citizenship in the host-country. A copy of a local passport is sufficient and customary.
We truly hope that you can attend one of our site visits and experience our work. Because our local teams are extremely focused on providing educational opportunities to children in the developing world, we are unable to accommodate requests outside of these dates. We appreciate your flexibility and understanding and hope to see you in one of our program countries!
We plan our site visit calendar on an annual basis. If you are looking for a 2014 visit date, please check back periodically, as we add dates to the calendar.
