December 16 & 30 Reading Caravan @ San Vicente Magsingal & San Pedro, Vigan

The  December 16 Reading Caravan was conducted in San Vicente, Magsingal. The books were donated by Read Pilipinas, Ms. Carlotta Steven Fealy, Ms. Violet Whim Alderleaf, and Peace Corp. Support was also extended by the Office of Senator Bongbong Marcos. The Caravan was conducted with the help of Dr. Estrella Oliver Soria and her team of San Vicente Professionals' Association. The children are from daycare to Grade Six. In this program, we have introduced the book exchange wherein a volunteer coordinator will meet the children regularly to have their books swapped to maximize impact. We hope to partner again with the Association for more projects.

In December 30, the Reading Caravan was conducted in cooperation with the Saint Paul College of Ilocos Sur H.S. Batch '88 at San Pedro, Vigan City. It is said that San Pedro is a relocation site of marginalized urban poor in the country's World Heritage Site - Vigan city proper.
The books have been provided by Read Philippines, Ms. Carlotta Steven Fealy, Ms. Violet Whim Alderleaf, and with assistance from Sen. Bongbong Marcos.

Barangay San Pedro Officials led by Punong Barangay Magno led support to the book and school supplies distribution. The parents of the children danced with glee after the event.
