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.
