One of the modern heroes of this generation is our volunteers, who sacrifice time and effort to provide for those who are in need. Our storytellers are great narrators of stories, both of books and of children’s lives.

The First Kwentista of The Storytelling Project

Rey Bufi enjoys reading and wants to influence the younger generation to make it a fun learning experience. In 2012, he initiated The Storytelling Project. Their group would go and stay in different secluded areas in the Philippines to read stories in front of children. In addition, they wanted to enhance their audiences’ listening skills and imagination.

The Storytelling Project 

The Storytelling Project is currently a decade old this year. They taught and helped a lot of children and families already, but the story should continue and go beyond what is expected. It is a non-profit group that fosters a love of reading through storytelling.

As a result of perseverance and hope, they shared stories from 30 provinces and built partnerships with nine (9) schools and communities. They also donated more than 20,000 storybooks to libraries and Filipino children. The project provided workshops for more than 10,000 educators, volunteers, and soldiers around the country.
