Making Connections Through Books; Austin Woman Helps Bring Books to People in Africa

Read To Recovery’s plot continues to thicken as the program continues to thrive.

Read to Recovery began with psychology instructor Barb Houle's idea to help schools, health centers and hospitals over in the South African country of eSwatini — formerly known as Swaziland before its new name change in 2018 — get access to reading material for patients who were recovering from various treatments and procedures.

For almost a decade, Read To Recovery has been helping communities in eSwatini gain access to reading materials.
