About The Storytelling Project
The Storytelling Project (TSP) aims to spark hope, inspiration and imagination through storytelling; to make reading an enjoyable experience for children; to start a reading habit; and to instill the love of reading and learning in all our TSP kids. We’ve tirelessly crossed rivers and excitedly conquered mountains to reach remote communities – to bring our own brand of happy learning. 
We help communities develop a culture of reading through our 3-phase program: IMAGINE. CREATE. SHARE. 
IMAGINE - Build the kids’ imagination through the 21-Day Storytelling Program, storywriting sessions and empower the community through the trainings and seminars.
CREATE - Create avenues for exploring their newfound love for reading through the TSP Library Project.
SHARE - Share knowledge and experiences with the Community through the TSP Club.
Pagsawitan Elementary School Phase 2
TSP volunteers will visit Pagsawitan Elementary School every weekend to conduct storytelling sessions for Grade 3 students.
Storytelling Routine
During weekends, volunteers will be divided into clusters. Each cluster will do the routine in a public area near the students' homes. Some locations are near, some may require a bit of trekking. Our routine usually starts with songs and dances then a lead facilitator would tell the story for the day. Volunteers who want to do storytelling may do so at the given time. There will also be post-reading activities for the kids. Volunteers may also choose to stay overnight at the school or for just 1 day
Daily storytelling sessions start at 9:00 AM until 11:00 AM. 
Meeting time at the school is 8:00 AM to allow for preparation and/or trek to the location depending on which cluster you will choose.
How to get there: 
• Meeting place is at JAC Liner Buendia near LRT, 6:00AM. (Bus leaves every 30 minutes). TSP coordinator will be there during weekends. If not on a weekend, tell the conductor to drop you off at Pagsawitan near DLTB terminal at Sta Cruz Laguna. 
• Those who wish to travel from Cubao could ride DLTB bus line along EDSA Aurora Blvd to Sta Cruz. 
• Those who wish to travel from Alabang could ride DLTB bus line in Starmall.
• Those who wish to travel from Calamba could ride buses to Sta Cruz that pass by WalterMart Calamba. 
Important Reminder: 
TSP Coordinator will get in touch with you for orientation before you travel to Pagsawitan.
