School-based Reading Program: Lifelong Love of Reading, funded by OSC, strives to promote pleasure reading among local primary school children and their parents. A curated library stocking 100 new books will be launched in six primary schools, which will be accompanied by interesting workshops to arouse children’s motivation to read. In addition, the organisation will provide storytelling training for parents before they host reading sessions throughout the school year.

由「愛心聖誕大行動」資助的School-based Reading Program: Lifelong Love of Reading旨在讓家長帶領小學生一併閱讀,從而提升他們對閱讀的興趣。此計劃將於6所小學開設圖書館,並放置100本新書,配以生動有趣的圖書館工作坊,提升孩子的閱讀動力。此外,該機構還會教授家長不同的講故事技巧,讓他們於閱讀環節說出引人入勝的故事。
