BENEFITING: Room To Read

EVENT: Lead Now Tour

THE STORY:

Enter to WIN a Marmot Traillight 2 person tent by EITHER donating $27 or more to any of our 12 organizations OR starting a fundraiser and raising at least $75. One winner per month. 

The Lead Now Tour kicks off in South Africa during the month of June and July, where the team visits a Room to Read site in the field. Room to Read focuses on increasing students’ access to reading material in their native language. In 2012, Room to Read South Africa introduced a Reading & Writing Instruction program in Sepedi. The program focuses on improving the literacy skills of early grade readers with the goal of helping them become lifelong learners.

80% of students in South Africa have no library. Rural schools in particular suffer from overcrowding, poor infrastructure such as collapsed ceilings and broken windows, and lack of non-textbook reading material. Diversity of language adds another layer to South Africa’s already complex educational system, with the country recognizing 11 official languages.
