On Monday, January 21st we travelled to the Mekong Delta from Ho Chi Minh City with a team of Vietnamese university students to deliver Global Village Foundation portable libraries. Five of those libraries were donated by Journeys of the Heart contributors!
It was very encouraging for us to see the team of volunteers; young, enthusiastic, bright Vietnamese dedicated to developing education and social programs in their country. It was a high energy day.
The focus is of course on the books and instilling a love of reading, using some creative techniques in dramatization and team work based on what the kids had read. They read on their own, reported the story to their group and then the group decided how they would present the story to the group at large.
We were entertained with some songs as well.
Bravo for all of our donors! Thanks Journeys of the Heart from the
children of My Thanh!
