Reading aloud with children from CREDO Foundation
February 2014 │ Indonesia
CREDO (Creative Education Indonesia) Foundation is an organisation located in the Permata Hijau area south of Jakarta, whose objective is to improve literacy of disadvantaged children living in the area and also to increase their interest in reading. CREDO Foundation opens reading classes for pre-school children three times a week with a curriculum tailored to the Indonesian government curriculum, but with more innovative and creative teaching methods.
On February 14, eight Deutsche Bank volunteers from Jakarta participated in such a reading class, working with 20 pre-school children. The volunteers engaged the children in story-telling as well as creative thinking.
