Storytelling in the Philippines

Aug 27, 2009

Last week, our Amway affiliate in the Philippines held a storytelling event with 280 first grade students. Here’s the link to a write-up in the Manila Bulletin:

Low literacy is a severe issue in the Philippines. Using storytelling as an innovative approach to making reading fun, Amway Philippines is reaching out through a series of roadshows in elementary schools near Amway Distributor Centers.

A typical two-day road show features a storytelling workshop for teachers and Amway IBOs and employees on the first day, and a “learning festival” on the second day.

In total, these road shows will reach 7,000 children across the Philippines.
