067 / Doro, Pekalongan, Central Java – School Eco-Library
Mrs. Romyati works in school administration and manages two elementary school libraries at the same time.
Now the library contains around 400 books, mostly textbooks and a couple of colorful pictorial books that are in high demand. They organize drawing and reading competitions for the students.
What bothers Mrs. Romyati, is that students there always throw their rubbish on the ground and that the teachers do not care about this bad habit. She believes that it can be changed through our Eco-Library program: “Children are very easy to influence. For example, after reading the Cinderella story, they suddenly wanted to be Cinderella. So I believe, that the Green Books will be a perfect tool.”
