BOOKS IN A BOX – RURAL LIBRARY PROJECT
$100 SHIPS ONE BOX OF 350 CHILDREN’S BOOKS AND STARTS A NEW SITE FOR 50 CHILDREN TO CHECK OUT BOOKS!
Seeds of Dignity Ministries has been able to establish over 75 simple lending libraries for children in mostly rural areas of the Philippines through the help of many people in the USA and Canada. Many friends have been able to gather and send gently used or new books targeted at children ages six to 12 years old. In most areas of the USA, there are services that ship boxes to the Philippines for a cost of about $100 USD. These boxes are delivered directly to our specified locations without the need to pay other fees. One box can start a small lending library in a rural village. Small libraries are as simple as bringing books in boxes each Saturday to a home or church. Children are allowed to read the books and to take one book home each week and return the book the following Saturday. We have found this also to be a great way to open doors to families and communities for the building of relationships and sharing of the gospel message.
