What is the KIDS DREAM Cart Project?
The KIDS DREAM Cart is a project of KIDS Club Philippines that aims to help promote literacy in the Philippines. We have partnered with passionate educators in different elementary schools who are willing to commit their time and energy to help low-performing students enjoy learning through reading. This project is inspired by our SAI KIDS DREAM Hub with the objective to provide a holistic and balanced environment to encourage the children to:
- Discover their potentials and talents;
- Relax and enjoy their lives as kids;
- Explore the possibilities through books and toys;
- Achieve their goals; and
- Motivate other students to nurture their passion for learning.
What are its features?
1. A Cart-full of Fun Learning
The KIDS DREAM Cart is micro version of our SAI KIDS DREAM Hub. Inside the cart are storybooks, flashcards, puzzles, board games, and other educational tools. This is to encourage low-performing students to learn how to read and enjoy learning.
2. Open for elementary students from all levels
In order to reach out to more children, the Cart is open for students from all grade levels to use and enjoy.
3. Partnership with Passionate Educators and Volunteers
This project came to life because of the expressions of interest from passionate educators. Some time last year, KIDS Club met some elementary school teachers who wish to do more beyond their official duties at school. We also met a few individuals who are willing to volunteer to lend a hand guiding the children how to read and enjoy learning.
4. Mobility and Accessibility
As the name suggests, the Cart a combination of two bookshelves on wheels. It was designed as such for easy storage and mobility. With this, the teacher and the students can bring and use it anywhere such as an open space in a classroom or even under the shades of a tree. Likewise, it would be easier to hand it to one teacher to the other without the hassle of setting up the books and toys every time.
