We are constantly in awe of our partner, Project PEARLS, based in Manila, Philippines. Their dedication to literacy for all, and ability to mobilize huge public support for the cause is incredible. Project PEARLS mission is to help the poorest of the poor children in the Philippines have a better life through education, empowerment, nutrition, healthcare service.
Their talk translates to action. This year, they organized a march through Manila in celebration of World Read Aloud Day, where hundreds of folks came together to advocate for literacy and celebrate the boundless power of the read aloud.
Last week, Project PEARLS travelled 8 hours to the Library on the Coast in Daet, Camarines Norte, Philippines. They trained 5 new LitClub mentors and have 22 students ready to join!
Congratulations to Project PEARLS, and thank you for your unending support for LitWorld, LitClubs, and literacy throughout the world!
