Adult Scouts give back their spare times for Literary Movement to enencourage their own community to have fun educating literary activity as our campaign of Long Life Learning Habit. In particular to encourage them to develop their reading habit.
Our pilot project is conducted by a poet adult scout volunteer from Jatirejo Village in East Java Province, Indonesia; Mrs. PIPIT ATI.
She is initiating a poem reading habit in monthly gathering of mothers and young women in Jatirejo village. This event was mainly held to educate young mothers about children and woman health care. But this week, Mrs. PIPIT ATI, our adult volunteer also put poem reading and discussion in the schedule.
She is also develop a story telling campaign, where mothers are encouraged to read to her toddlers and her neighbors's toddlers once a week, so everyday the story telling happen everyday in the neighborhood. This is our project of developing reading habit amongst people who didn't see reading as their need. Hopefully by the end of next month, mothers of Jatirejo's village will have a new passion of reading and self-actualization activity through reading.
