A visit to one of our partner communities gives you one-of-a-kind access to our projects, the opportunity to meet our local teams, and interact with the children, parents and teachers in our programs. Whether you have been a supporter for years, or are just beginning to learn about our work, this unique, firsthand experience will change the way you view your place in the world.
Every year, we offer field trips to both Literacy Program and Girls' Education Program sites on various dates and in different program countries. Our 2019 field trip opportunities are listed below. Click on your preferred dates and make your payment of $25 per person. You will be taken to an external website to make your payment. Please note that you will need to return to this page and go through Steps 2 and 3 to complete your registration.
Registration for field trips close six weeks prior to the date of the visit for almost all Room to Read program countries. Registration for field trips in Laos will close 10 weeks prior to the date of the visit.
Please keep your entire day available. A field trip can take up to a full day, including travel time, with one to three hours spent at the school community. We will provide an itinerary with exact timing to registered participants approximately two weeks prior to the visit.
Your day will begin with getting to know members of our local staff. After a brief orientation on Room to Read's presence in-country, the group will depart for the project site. There you will meet the school administration and participate in interactive learning activities with the students and school community. You will be provided with a more detailed itinerary that is tailored to your specific trip.
A Room to Read staff member will travel with you for the entire duration of your visit. Room to Read will arrange for your ground transportation from the point of departure to the project site and back.
Room to Read will pay for your transportation to and from the project site. You are responsible for your international flights, visas, lodging, meals and incidentals.
