MANY ANGELS CAME TO US
By Aris Miarti - Fundraising Officer
Yes, we are glad that during the last three months, we had so many beautiful moments with people who wanted to help develop our library. With the help and cooperation of PT. Monex MAD, we have received many books to increase our books collection to be read and borrowed by the children and also to be distributed through our Box of Books Program. Around390 children books were donated including novels, encyclopedias, comics, schoolbooks and also books of general knowledge were given to us, together with games for the children. We had a special celebration for the handover of this donation, and the donor even brought a story teller. What a fun day for everyone, thank you!
Other beautiful moments included the visits of students from the United World College of South-East Asia (UWCSEA Singapore), families from the American Women Association (AWA), students from Pelita Harapan University (UPH), students from the Jakarta International School (JIS) and also students from the British International School (BIS) who all participated in activities with our children in the library such as games, storytelling, arts and crafts, making posters, make a book about things and animals and much more. They also helped us by giving donations such as games, books and magazines. As a result, our collection has now reached 4.132 books. With these books we can increase our services to the children and community around the library and we are really proud that we now have more than 1.500 visitors each month coming to our library!!! What an excellent achievement for our library in a small village!
We also held a Creativity Day together with the Social Ministry to appreciate children’s creativity through a poetry reading competition, a drawing and coloring competition, a boy band and girl band dancing competition, and much more. Through these competitions, we hope the children’s creativity can be increased, as well as their love of reading.
We invite you to be the next Angels for our library to increase a love of reading in Cipanas, Indonesia, and please consider telling your friends and family about our project - share the link on your blogs or social networks, use the tell-a-friend feature on the project page to email your network, or just bring us up in conversation. We believe that your help will make a better life for the children there. Thank you!!!
