We dream of raising empowered readers
Functional illiteracy is one of the root causes of economic and societal problems in the country. At Looking for Juan, it is our dream to raise a generation of socially aware readers and learners by fostering a love of books.
Through our Buy 1, Donate Books to Juan program, we match every purchase with book donations to Filipino children in underprivileged communities, exposing them to quality books made by the best Filipino authors and artists. But beyond this, we can do so much more. Take part in our social impact projects by being a Looking for Juan volunteer.
