“Giving is not just about making a donation, it’s about making a difference. If the money we donate helps one child access good quality children’s books or can make a child believe in their dreams, those funds are well spent. ”
Numerous studies estimate that as many as one in five children have difficulties learning to read. Reading has been associated as an early indicator of academic success. Public formal education does not typically start until ages 5-6. Before then, parents and caregivers are the first education providers during the 0-5 early critical years. In Santa Rita, a 3rd class municipality in Samar, Philippines with recent statistics shows poverty incidence at 44.95%, children from disadvantaged family has no access to good quality children’s books.
It is with great excitement that I inform you all about progress of the project. Our team was able to raise P203,517 or $3,689.97 as of July 1, 2022 exchange rate and 2148 books from 64 donors in 7 months.
We are looking forward to sign a memorandum of agreement with the local government that will be the beneficiary of the project. We are still accepting donations, both monetary and in kind, as we move forward to the reading program of the project.
