Story Corner

Corner Story

Once a week, GOCARE and its volunteers put on Story Corner for the local children of Pantanal. Students look forward to this exciting event every week and bring their siblings and parents along to hear their favorite stories of adventure and mystery. While gathered in a large circle, the children eagerly take turns reading aloud to their peers and proudly show their families what they learned in our program. According to Scholastic.com, children learn an average of 4,000 to 12,000 words each year as a result of book reading. Story Corner reinforces the importance of reading within a fun learning environment in an effort to spread the joys of education, awaken the children’s love of reading at an early age and help break the barriers that continue the line of living in poverty.
