    “When we started the book-giving caravan amidst a pandemic and after Typhoon Ulysses, Toyota was eager to support our cause. We at Lakbay-Kuwentuhan aim to bring Filipino stories written by Filipino authors for Filipino children to communities across the country to lessen the effects of the pandemic on children’s reading attitudes and in support of DepEd’s Bawat Bata  Bumabasa campaign,” Basa Bookstore Founder and Chief Storytelling Officer Rey Bufi stated.

    “For these, we and the local communities are so grateful for Toyota’s role in moving our world,” Bufi added.

    The Toyota Lite Ace, known as the “kasosyo sa asenso” of the Filipinos, helps small business owners in their efforts to succeed in raising the standard of living in their communities. With its size and capability to transport items with ease and speed, the Toyota Lite Ace Panel Van helped organize the Lakbay-Kuwentuhan caravan by efficiently delivering books to curious children.

    “Part of promoting better quality of life for Filipinos is nurturing young minds and providing them with the tools for continuous learning. We at TMP believe that all children deserve quality education as this will prepare them for their future and help mold them into the person they hope to become. We support initiatives such as this from Basa Bookstore and we are honored to be part of this caravan. We thank them for trusting Toyota and we look forward to more similar future activities powered by our goal of creating mobility for all,” TMP Assistant Vice President of Marketing Services Department Elvin Luciano said.
