New Heroes for New Recipients

“Great children’s books are wisdom dipped in words and art” ~ P. Reynolds

For our first Bright Readers event for 2017, we are not only grateful for our new Bright Start Heroes but we are equally ecstatic to have a new recipient in Mindanao!

The books from our donors in Tualatin, Oregon have reached Zamboanga del Norte. And this was made possible through our new supporters, the “Artists for Others.” One of the artists, Bisai, was introduced to us by Marem Flores, our very loyal volunteer and our “book lady” in Oregon. Bisai shared with us that the Alternative Learning System (ALS) teachers of Zambaonga del Norte wished that they can have books for their students who live in far flung areas. Ms. Perlita Gerson, ALS Head Teacher of Purok 2 of ALS Katipunan, Zamboanga del Norte chapter and a Grade 6 teacher of Katipunan Elementary School, recently received the box full of books. It is great to see the smiles of the students!

Happy reading to all and more power to the teachers! Your dedication inspires us to do more Bright Reader events in the future.
Thank you once again for our donors and supporters.

To God be the Glory!
