About Read with Me

Read with Me is a monthly online reading program that connects one volunteer to one child in rural China. Every week within the program, the volunteers talk with the their reading partner about the reading and elicit insightful responses from the otherwise isolated kids. At the end of the program, the kids design bookmarks and letters as a gift for the volunteers.

Spring Foundation attempts to call attention on the astute lack of motivation for these rural children who are cut off from the modern world. We encourage the kids to step out of their comfort zone and explore the world through literary engagement with amazing short stories. After a month of intense reading and conversation, Read with Me aims to promote the kids' personal development all the way into the future.
