About The Storytelling Project
The Storytelling Project (TSP) aims to spark hope, inspiration and imagination through storytelling; to make reading an enjoyable experience for children; to start a reading habit; and to instill the love of reading and learning in all our TSP kids. We’ve tirelessly crossed rivers and excitedly conquered mountains to reach remote communities – to bring our own brand of happy learning.
We help communities develop a culture of reading through our 3-phase program: IMAGINE. CREATE. SHARE.
IMAGINE - Build the kids’ imagination through the 21-Day Storytelling Program, storywriting sessions and empower the community through the trainings and seminars.
CREATE - Create avenues for exploring their newfound love for reading through the TSP Library Project.
SHARE - Share knowledge and experiences with the Community through the TSP Club.
Pagsawitan Elementary School Phase 2
TSP volunteers will visit Pagsawitan Elementary School every weekend to conduct storytelling sessions for Grade 3 students.
During weekends, volunteers will be divided into clusters. Each cluster will do the routine in a public area near the students' homes. Some locations are near, some may require a bit of trekking. Our routine usually starts with songs and dances then a lead facilitator would tell the story for the day. Volunteers who want to do storytelling may do so at the given time. There will also be post-reading activities for the kids. Volunteers may also choose to stay overnight at the school or for just 1 day
Daily storytelling sessions start at 9:00 AM until 11:00 AM.
Meeting time at the school is 8:00 AM to allow for preparation and/or trek to the location depending on which cluster you will choose.
How to get there:
• Meeting place is at JAC Liner Buendia near LRT, 6:00AM. (Bus leaves every 30 minutes). TSP coordinator will be there during weekends. If not on a weekend, tell the conductor to drop you off at Pagsawitan near DLTB terminal at Sta Cruz Laguna.
• Those who wish to travel from Cubao could ride DLTB bus line along EDSA Aurora Blvd to Sta Cruz.
• Those who wish to travel from Alabang could ride DLTB bus line in Starmall.
• Those who wish to travel from Calamba could ride buses to Sta Cruz that pass by WalterMart Calamba.
TSP Coordinator will get in touch with you for orientation before you travel to Pagsawitan.
