Girls enjoy reading their favorite books in their own classroom and in their library. Books donated from American schools, are sent to schools in the Barrios. This project started by BOOKS for the BARRIOS allows schools and children in the USA the opportunity to share material that can be reused and enjoyed by children in the Philippines. These books help the children learn to read and increase their literacy. The books provide an important part of these children’s education. The books and other donations such as toys and school supplies enhance the learning atmosphere. Children are encouraged to learn through play and cooperation. These books are shared throughout the community and are enjoyed by many.
