Do you have a lot of children books that you don’t use anymore?? or do you have books that have big impact in your life and you already finished reading it and maybe those books could inspire others? or do you just simply want to do good?
We want to invite you to involve to do good things with us!
We want to help to fill up one school’s library near our field site with children books – either it new books or second-hand books! Our team members will come back to Desa Pemerihan, Lampung to continue our data collection in January 2015 and we are planning to bring some books to our field site. We thought that if we could bring more books, it would be better as kids around our field site can enjoy more books and inspired by more books.
Our mission is simple:
“Do what you can do!”
And we are able to go there for free and and we are strong enough to bring couple kilos of books on the way. So, we want to invite you guys who are interested and are lucky enough to be able enjoying reading books, to join us to help kids in rural place to get easier access to books.
So, who will received the books?
We will give all the books we collected to SD Negeri 1 Pemerihan where we had our Bird and Bat awareness activity last year. We’ve done a puppet show for 50 students (4th grade) in this school. All the kids here were very curious of our activity, they listened to the puppet show, even the one from the class next door. Some of kids here able recognized birds surround their neighborhood (from our poster). But they have a very limited books source to read 😦
So, where can you drop your books?
You can drop you book at our office:
Research Center for Climate Change, University of Indonesia.
Gedung Rektorat Universitas Indonesia, Lantai 8,5, Kampus Depok UI
Our team member, Sisil (a.k.a me!!) also willing to pick up your books if you are around Depok area. Please contact her via sms/whatsapp on this number: +6281315894366
We will collect any kind of books, but children books are preferred.
