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.

The information in this document is meant to give you an idea of what to expect on a Room to Read Field Trip.

Please review these guidelines prior to your field trip. 

Note: Government schools in the countries where we work are not equipped for those with physical disabilities. If you or your travel companions require wheelchair accessible vehicles or need special arrangements at the school to accommodate your group, please let us know as soon as possible.


Traveling throughout Room to Read countries with children can be a challenging, yet rewarding experience. We created a list of tips based on other family visits to help your family have the best possible experience visiting our work.


You have the unique opportunity of getting to see Room to Read’s work in person and we want to hear all about it! This document has different ways you can share your story with us. Please take a few minutes to review the possibilities and, if you’d like to participate, let us know what you are thinking and if you have any questions.
