HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!! 'Tis the season to share love and hope to everyone, especially to those who are in need. This Christmas season, LIKHANG BATA CREATIVITY CENTER (LBCC) welcomes a new partner - THE PHILIPPINE TOY LIBRARIES. What started out as an idea of friends to put together a room full of toys that children from indigent communities can go to and play, THE PHILIPPINE TOY LIBRARIES has now set-up 34 Toy Libraries all over the country from Culion, Palawan to Zamboanga City in Mindanao. Formally launched in June 12, 2012, Philippine Toy Library (PTL) transforms idle spaces in barangays, schools, parishes, and partner organizations into fun and educational playrooms for the children in the community.
Last July 2015, LBCC's teacher Dindi was invited to join a group of individuals who were conducting a birthday party at a day care center and public toy library at the Payatas Compound, Quezon City. After meeting the beneficiary children and enjoying an afternoon of sharing and creating simple arts & craft projects, LBCC and point person Mr. Edsel Ramirez was able to discuss a possible collaboration. Then finally with solid plans coordinated with Mr. Quintin Pastrana, LBCC is now proud to be one of it's official partners in promoting creative learning by contributing used but still useful toys and children's books.
If you wish to share your stash of old toys that are in good condition, or children's books that may still peak the interest of the younger generation, you may send them over to LIKHANG BATA CREATIVITY CENTER in 1107 Quezon City and we will take care of sorting, coordinating and delivering it to the different Toy Libraries all over the Philippines.
