Book Drive

Libro mo, Inspirasyon ko

Project Rationale

With poverty increasing, proper education is on the decline. Although we believe that developing our children’s love for reading can help a lot to improve their education, the lack of money to buy educational books for their children is a major issue among parents.

It is necessary then that they have available reading materials other than their text books. We believe developing their own libraries which many of the schools in the barrios don’t have can greatly help in the education of these children.

We also believe that additional reading materials and references for teachers that can make them aware of current events can make them better teachers to their students.

Computers and educational softwares and encyclopedias are also important as research tool for the students and teachers to improve their skills. Outdated computers can still be useful to these schools provided they can still run basic educational softwares.

Educational materials and toys for pre-school children than can greatly help improve their creativity early can make them easier to teach as they grow. 

Used book shelves can also be used in schools where there's no existing libraries.


Everyone can be a donor, any book can be a source of inspiration although we need age appropriate books useful to pre-school to high school students and also publications useful to teachers.
Companies who can donate outdated computers and equipments that can be used as teaching tools such as audio visual equipments.


Legible recipients are public or private Elementary and High Schools in far flung Barangays who have no regular access to good reads.
Barangay Nursery and Kindergarten schools.
