Palmer’s Blog: Improving Literacy in Manila
During my recent trip to Manila, I visited the Manila (Quirino) Day Care Center, a continuing project of Manila Host Lions Club since 2007. The center caters to 4- to 5-year-old children of poverty-stricken families — preparing the children for a formal education through a fun learning process.
Lions of District 301-A1 organized a Reading Action Program project at the day care center. We distributed school supplies, school bags and story books to the children.
One of my favorite things about traveling to meet Lions everywhere is meeting the children impacted by Lions initiatives. Whether through the Reading Action Program, vision screenings or children’s diabetes camps, Lions work together to ensure the children of this world are happy and healthy, with bright futures ahead.
