Third Story Project, in collaboration with the Asia Foundation, organized a storytelling workshop called ‘Let’s Read’ at the News and Periodicals Enterprise building on Theinbyu Road, downtown Yangon, yesterday morning.
The workshop will continue till 19 February, 9 am to 5 pm, and aims to teach the art of storytelling, reading stories and creating some of your own.
Ma Chan Nyein Phyu, the workshop’s organizer, said Myanmar Storytellers and Youth Volunteers (Yangon), both philanthropic organizations, have been collaborating for children’s education since 2012.
She said Third Story Project was established in 2014 after some time in volunteering where it became apparent that Myanmar children’s storybooks were becoming rarer. She said the project creates these storybooks and distribute them to impoverished areas.
Third Story Project not only helps children receive storybooks, they also aim to instill good manners in young minds.
The workshop was mainly attended by teachers from civil society organizations, philanthropic schools, and private and public schools, in addition to people from other vocations.
People interested in participating in ‘Let’s Read’ storytelling workshop can inquire for more information at No.86, 52nd Street (middle block), Pazundaung Township. —Ommar Thant (Translated by Zaw Htet Oo)
