Charleston Chapter of Chums - Program LIT @ BOWs

Charleston Chapter of Chums connects with students through a reading partnership, Program

LIT (Learn, Inspire, Teach). This year the partnership with Beyond Our Walls (BOWs)

enlightened eager young minds virtually as Chums rotated reading storybooks to an average of

15 children weekly on Wednesdays. To conclude this season, they journeyed to Africa, reading

"Anansi and the Moss-Covered Rock" retold by Eric A. Kimmel and illustrations by Janet

Stevens. Chum Gloria McDonald, President Chum Cheryl L. Merritt, and Chum Ruthie Walker

were able to visit the new location for this final story sharing authentic African artifacts the

students were able to touch.

"While the primary focus of BOWs is on literacy, it's a place where children and adult

relationships highlight the importance of achieving increasing levels of academic, behavior and

social skills for personal success. The goal is to expose children living with limited resources to

the many cultural and educational opportunities available." They are grassroots citizens who care

about children and believe "Education Is A Key to Success" for their futures.
