In 2006, Central Bureau shows that Indonesian society have not make reading activities as the main source for information. The people prefer watching TV (85,9%), listening to the radio (40,3%) to reading the newspaper (23,5%).
We’ve done Various events so that the society becomes aware of the importance of reading books, therefore in the future Indonesia has a generation with adequate intelligence in facing the challenges forward. In that spirit, #WarnaiMimpimu also receive children books donation which will be channeled to eighteen (18) TBAL points in Lombok, Wakatobi, and Maluku (Ambon, Pulau Saparua, Pulau Seram dan Pulau Fordata) where the access of children reading book that is suitable for their age is very limited in that region.
