  33. Please understand that in the areas we are helping, there aren’t that many textbooks and there is NO Internet access. The purpose of what we’re doing is to improve literacy in places that truly need assistance. Perhaps in the future we could help these places get Internet access, but for now, textbooks are a much needed commodity.

  34. It’s a shame yoou don’t have a donate button! I’d without a doubt donate to this outstanding blog! I suppose for now i’ll settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to fresh updates and will talk about this site with my Facebook group. Chat soon!

  35. Would like to wish all the staff and volunteers who are travelling to Binaton today to do our very first official book donation. We have had a huge response from our local friends and supports in Davao who have offered time, money and logistic support in getting the books delivered all the way up to this remote school. It is an eight hour trip by two wheeled motorcycle all the way up there as the roads are not suitable for larger vehicles. Gemma, Nicole and Joric are leading a team of ten local Davao volunteers on the two day trek into the mountains where they will offer reading support/classes, story corners, a fun two days of activities and adventure for our team as well as for the local students to go along with the range of snacks and treats we will be providing the students as well as the donation of one millions words of printed reading.
    Please read more about the Binaton project and situation of the Binaton Elementary School, which will finally have it first ever library.
    A very very big thank you to the volunteers and staff for their effort in this project.

    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The style and design look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Cheers

    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will bee a lot more useful than ever before.
