Friday, October 12 
The focus of today will be to visit two Literacy Program schools supported by Room to Read. Our Literacy Program provides schools with tailored assistance to ensure students have the instruction and resources they need to develop strong literacy skills and a habit of reading. The visits will take us through reading and writing instruction activities in the classroom, followed by time in the library to read with the children from the library's collection of colorful and engaging materials. You will have a chance to rest, relax and reflect on our Room to Read visits over a farewell dinner in the evening.
