The “Reading 4 Ghana” program is designed to provide students in the U.S. an opportunity to join our efforts of promoting literacy here and abroad. Together, we are taking a stand for the importance of reading – all across the globe. Here’s how the program works:
- U. S. students will have an opportunity to help bring books to Ghana through their own commitment to spend time reading.
- Participating K – 6 classrooms will raise money for our current library project in Ghana through minutes read , both in and out of the classroom. Minutes read = Dollars earned!
- We will visit each participating classroom to launch the program. We will share our personal experiences in Ghana through stories, photos and artifacts.
- Students will maintain a reading log for a determined amount of time. Classroom teachers and students’ parents will be responsible for monitoring the reading logs.
- Local businesses and community members have the opportunity to advocate for the importance of reading by financially sponsoring a classroom.
TODAY’S READERS ARE TOMORROW’S LEADERS!
