we organized storytelling sessions and the tickets were books. Children also brought their friends to storytelling sessions. We collected and donated books to the school's library "Mara MANDIC" in Pancevo. That's not the end, we'll be back.
Young Heroes 2018
Young Heroes Celje
In April 2018, our learning centre HD Celje collected books for the Public Institution Socio Celje and Social Work Centre Celje. Children were asked to bring 2 books to the centre, one for donation and one for exchange. We collected over 200 books in 2 languages! Those institutions will help to distribute new and used books in hands of children who can't afford them. During the project, our students also designed their own bookmarks with the drawing from their favourite book. This made their reading experience even more unique.
Food for Thought
Helen Doron Granada
We opened a little library at our Learning Centre for 6-year-olds upward and challenged them to take home and read 10-20 books throughout the school year. We also collected books for a special School Home called Madre Teresa that helps children in difficult social and family situations. During this period we also organized live and interactive storytelling with some of our children in a small local school. After the book drop, our PWT classes performed storytelling for the children before giving them the books we collected. It was great to see how happy all the children were!
How to become a writer
Heroes from chita
during spring holidays, we held a city camp "Readers are leaders". We had 5 themed days about the most popular literary characters: Harry potter, Alice in Wonderland, Mary Poppins so on. We learnt how to be a reader, and how to be a writer, how to write a book, how to design a book; we organized projects such as bookcrossing. We wrote our own book and became young writers with superpowers!
Alphabet Picture Book
We decided to create a picture book. Younger kids made illustrations and the older kids wrote the words. We are going to print it and it will be available to purchase to earn money for people in need.
Readers are leaders
We decided to donate books to the children's department of the hospital so the children could have less painful stay while they are ill. we donated more than 180 books. A few of our students read books to children that couldn't.
The Mobile Library
AT hELEN DORON isRAEL, WE DECIDED TO CREATE A NATIONWIDE PROJECT. WE TURNED EVERY HELEN DORON LEARNING CENTRE IN THE COUNTRY INTO A BOOK DONATION POINT FOR CHILDREN'S BOOKS. ALL THE BOOKS COLLECTED TO A LOCAL ORGANIZATION WHICH OPERATES MOBILE LIBRARIES FOR KIDS IN PERIPHERAL AREAS, WHO OTHERWISE WOULD NOT HAVE ACCESS TO A LIBRARY. WITH THOUSANDS OF BOOKS COLLECTED AND AMAZING COOPERATION FROM STUDENTS AND PARENTS, THE PROJECT WILL CONTINUE THROUGHOUT THE SUMMER, ENCOURAGING MORE AND MORE KIDS TO READ!
Readers are leaders
HELEN DORON LEARNING CENTRE NOVI BEOGRAD1 EJBISI ORGANIZED MANY STORY TELLING WORKSHOPS. mANY OF OUR LEARNERS AS WELL AS THEIR FRIENDS ENTHUSIASTICALLY ENJOYED OUR TEACHERS ACTING SKILLS. ALL THE BOOKS THAT OUR YOUNG LEADERS COLLECTED WERE DONATED TO THE CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL "DR ZOTOVIC" IN BELGRADE, WHERE OUR TEACHERS ALSO ACTED OUT THE STORY OF THREE LITTLE PIGS. THIS PROJECT HAS BROUGHT MANY SMILES TO OUR YOUNG LEADERS, AS WELL AS ALL THE CHILDREN RESIDING IN THE HOSPITAL. OUR LEARNERS ARE OUR BIGGEST HEROES.
books - fairy tales for all
HDC KRANJ SLO
We collected books for the pediatric section of the Jesenice hospital. We also ran monthly reading hours in two libraries (kranj and trzic) from October and will be continuing until the end of June.
a book for a smile
we are students from helen doron buccinasco. our project is called "a book for a smile". we are going to collect and donate books to "dottor sorriso". the charity is going to sell our books and raise money to fund the activities of the organization in hospitals. "dottor sorriso" has been helping ill kids since 1995 thanks to clown therapy. every week, dottor sorriso volunteers visit children in hospitals and in this way 35.000 sick kids are helped every year. we are glad to take part in this wonderful project!
Encouraging Children to Read
The main part of the project is the Red Telephone Booth where children can exchange their book for another which they want to read. Apart from that they can answer simple questions about their favourite books and get a bookmark. We believe that this is the way how we can bring children to reading.
great books for great hearts
Our students were dedicated to collecting books for children in rehabilitation centre "miroslav zotovic" in Sokobanjska street in Belgrade. they also brought their friends to our storytelling sessions, and their ticket to go in was a book as a gift for children in need. Primary school dragan hercog is working with their hearts for children there, and our wish is to help their work giving great books for their library. This is just the beginning; together we will make a difference!
