Eager Readers at Girls LitClub in Manila

This past Sunday was my first reunion of the year with the Girls LitClubs at our partner organization, Real Life Foundation. It was so much fun to see the girls again, their shy smiles brightening wider and wider as the LitClubs session unfolded through the day.

We read a Tagalog/English book about fathers, and the girls were so eager to get a chance to read- they eagerly volunteered each time we turned the page, and it was encouraging to witness their thirst for their voice to be heard. We talked about the book, shared our favorite childhood memories, sang together, praised one another, and reminded each other of the seven strengths. We had a great afternoon spending time together!
