At Books for the Barrios, we have always believed in providing children who visit our facility a unique and empowering experience. Kids learn about Filipino children, learn to recycle and reuse their resources and that they can make a difference. Through slideshows, stories and pictures our young volunteers learn about their less fortunate peers who are “ Just Like Them ”. Kids will enjoy packing boxes with books, tasting a Filipino treat and learning about classmates in the rainforests and remote islands of the Philippines.
Our desire is to make this experience more meaningful by giving from our abundance and making a difference to help others.
You too can be part of this global citizenship and character building experience. Contact us for planning a field trip for your school, scout group, birthday party or corporate visits.
