Kyocera Corporation holds an outreach reading program in North Cebu

Cebu Province – The municipality of Compostela has a strong purok (zonal) system in its communities. In each purok, World Vision helped establish a reading center to promote the culture of reading among children and youth even outside the school and during weekends.

Trained reading facilitators, coming also from the purok, conduct regular reading and storytelling sessions.

Instead of spending their time inside computer shops, children improve their reading skills inside the reading center.

Last Saturday, representatives from Kyocera Corporation attend the reading session in one of the puroks. The said company is a donor of World Vision. A couple of years ago, they donated a reading center and some learning materials such as big books and coloring supplies.

They visited the children last weekend and volunteered to assist the reading sessions. They also surprised the kids with gifts and gave prizes during games.

The community people in Compostela are thankful to the generosity of Kyocera Corporation.
