Words Travel

(program of VOA)

VOA’s Words Travel works with men and women in correctional facilities to improve literacy and keep parents in touch with children, strengthening their relationships long distance.  The father reads stories on a tape and sends the books and tape to his child.  The children hear their father’s voice.  In addition, the fathers are encouraged to talk about the stories and relate them to real life.
