Festival of Learning 2010

Dear Friends,

From April 13 to May 09 2010, ATD Fourth World Movement Philippines will be organizing the Festival of Learning for the 21st consecutive year, for the children in four deprived areas of Manila.

We are pleased to invite you to come together and share your talents, time and ideas for activities, trips or anything that will make this summer vacation a great time for the children and their families. The festival aspires to build friendship and understanding between the poorest children and the adults from various backgrounds by sharing different avenues for learning.

It generally includes storytelling, arts and crafts workshops, drama sessions and presentations to unleash the children's potential. Outings with their families are also learning experiences and time to enjoy beauty of the nature.
However, it is also specific each year thanks to volunteers like you who join and share the best of their talents and passions.

We are counting on those who will be interested to get involved, please come to the Orientation Meeting for new volunteers:

March 20, 2010 at 3pm
At our office: 1225 Labores St., Pandacan, Manila

Please confirm your participation at 563 93 12, or email

See you soon! And best regards.

Project coordinator
