“Every child has the right to read.”

We in Project Pearls will always believe in that. Each one of us deserves to read and to have a proper education that can help us in having a better life and brighter future.

In line with the global celebration of World Read Aloud Day of LitWorld, one of our greatest partners, we had some important guests from the Philippine National Library to educationally entertain our PEARLS kids.

This special event was led by Ms. Melanie Abad Ramirez together with her team from the National Library.

They facilitated a story-telling and a puppets presentation that showcased some moral lessons that our kids can take away with them for this day.

Thank you so much, Ms. Melanie and to your whole team for emphasizing the importance of reading books to our kids.

The kids had so much fun for this day! Their smiles can testify it.

Today and everyday let us raise more awareness that the right to read belong to everyone.

 

 

We would also like to thank Zara and Glen Gomez for sponsoring today’s feeding.
