Here on Oahu, Reading Is Fundamental, Honolulu, Inc. has been providing books to keiki for 38 years. We are proud to be a part of RIF’s 50 year history!
In recognition of RIF’s 50th birthday, Governor David Ige proclaimed September 14, 2016 “Reading Is Fundamental Day.”
RIF-Honolulu volunteers celebrated this special day at Nanaikapono Elementary School with activities that included a book reading of “Happy Birthday to You!” by Dr. Seuss.
We look forward to many more years of inspiring kids to read!
