In 2009, The Dram Projects is concentrating on bringing the thrill and joy of reading to children who belong to communities that have little or no access to books.
At present TDP is visiting a refugee centre in Setapak, and an orphanage in Taman Tun Dr Ismail.
We would like to extend our reach but in order to do so, we need volunteers who are willing to spend several hours each week (preferably weekdays but weekends too) with children and teens at homes and shelters.
Volunteers are required to read to the children/teens and facilitate discussion groups and art-in-response-to-stories sessions. Training will be provided.
If you're interested in volunteering or just being kept informed of TDP's activities, please put your email address down on the board that is going round.
(For your blog please say that those who are interested can email firstname.lastname@example.org or find out more here )
