Literacy And Environment
Participants will have the opportunity to provide meaningful hands-on service through the preparation and distribution of mini-libraries and books of one's own to children in poor rural schools. Volunteers attach bookplates and organize approximately 200 children's books to each mini-library. The books of one's own will be sorted by grade-group for distribution to individual children to keep as their own. Distribution of the mini-libraries and books of one's own will give participants the chance to see remote rural villages. Participants on the Literacy Work Weeks year after year tell us they felt it was one of the most rewarding volunteer experiences they had ever had.
