Hi, I am April. Together with a group of women from my hometown in Santa Rita, Samar Philippines, we have initiated to bring early literacy to children from disadvantaged families. This is our way to fill in the gap in the early years programs in our community by providing an early literacy program for families with 0 to 5 years old. Through this, more or less 4000 children will have access to good quality children's books regardless of their socio-economic background.
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. Usa ka Yukot nga libro para han Mainuswagong nga Bungto challenge is a simple (read a book, any book to your child, with the goal of reading 1,000 before kindergarten) and very manageable endeavor.
Our goal is to provide a simple, innovative yet fun approach to establishing strong early literacy skills. We help young children gain the confidence necessary to become strong readers.
Your donations will go to the acquisition of the following:
1. Three wheel vehicle that will serve as the mobile library (roughly 3000 euro)
2. Books (4500 euro)
3. Reading program kit for registered families (2000 euro)
4. Others like forms, audio, speaker, megaphone (500 euro)
