Kids Love Read to Feed

Posted by Heifer Sacramento On Monday, July 30, 2012
Are you a teacher or parent looking for a new way to make reading exciting for youngsters?

Heifer International, the global hunger and poverty  charity, has a fun and fulfilling way for teachers to enliven their class’s reading efforts this school year. Read to Feed is a powerful reading incentive program that also fosters in children a passion for helping others.

It’s a well-established fact that developing a child’s reading ability, especially in the early years, is critical to that child’s future success. Teachers must constantly find new ways to motivate children to press forward with their reading efforts. Read to Feed melds the exciting work of Heifer International worldwide with specific reading goals.

In Read to Feed, children (individually or as a group) get sponsors for each book they read during their challenge period. At the end of the program, the group pools its funds and decides which animals to donate through Heifer International, to help other families move from hunger to self-reliance.
