C.A.R.E. provides resources to help improve quality of education and make reading fun for kids throughout Alimodian.

C.A.R.E. Initiatives are
1) BOOK LENDING PROGRAM
2) DROP EVERYTHING AND READ (DEAR)
3) FEED THE KIDS PROGRAM

BOOK LENDING:
Many village schools & neighborhoods do NOT have libraries. Kids are taught to read and write but do not have books to practice reading on.

The Concerned Alimodiananons Resource on Education is a non-profit organization (registered in Connecticut, U.S.A.) of Alimodiananons and friends all over the world that makes books available to even the most remote areas of town.

Townspeople and friends collect surplus books from more developed locations and send to our volunteers in town proper (a.k.a.the poblacion). We ask for for volunteers from the different communities/villages to help their own neighborhood by maintaining a little secure area (i.e., a bookshelf at one's home or barangay center), fill it with books from the poblacion and distribute. They return and borrow books as needed.

DEAR
The goal of the Drop Everything and Read program is to develop in young children a lifelong habit of reading through regular reading sessions conducted by adult volunteer “readers,” and by working with their parents to reinforce the habit at home. Our volunteers from the poblacion visit the sites and conduct reading sessions in order to help make reading fun for kids.

We hope that the reading session serves as a stimulating learning environment for children to be mentored by caring adults, for them to interact with other children, learn social and communication skills, and build their self-confidence.

A reading session is better seen than explained. Prospective volunteers can attend and watch the reading sessions.

To reinforce the reading habit among children, the volunteers will lend books to parents so they can read to their kids at home.


FEEDING PROGRAM
CARE focused on education in it's earlier years. However, we realized that when kids come to school hungry (many parents could barely afford to feed them), they could not focus on school. Now one can when his stomach is rumbling. Therefore, CARE partnered with the Gelacio Allones Memorial Elementary School (GAMES) in Binalud to pioneer the feeding program. Parents take turn cooking and feeding the kids in the morning. CARE and other donors provide ingredients. Mr. Adolfo Casorla is the driving force behind the feeding program at GAMES.

We hope that other schools and communities can implement same to help their own kids.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?
