Now in its second season, iRead @Home continues to touch young lives and unfold their dreams through promoting reading literacy even from the comfort of children’s homes. 

With hopes to further promote reading among children, the UPLB Development Communicators’ Society (UPLB DCS) is set to launch the official website of its online reading literacy advocacy, iRead @ Home, on April 11. This year’s second installment will also push through on April 27, 2022.

In 2010, iRead started as an annual reading literacy and awareness campaign of UPLB DCS to encourage students to develop a habit of reading by themselves. During face-to-face classes, the organization and volunteers visit elementary schools in Laguna and teach Grade 1 students basic reading and writing skills. 

Since the pandemic forced schools to implement online and modular learning, the physical conduct of the campaign was also put on hold. However, the organization has continued its mandate to promote reading literacy with the launching of iRead @ Home Season 1 last 2020 to motivate children to learn and enjoy reading through informational and storytelling videos posted on their official social media platforms. 

With its tagline, Touching Young Lives, Unfolding Great Dreams, iRead @ Home found a new way to reach and interact with more readers and iKidz. This year, the campaign will be launching an interactive learning website where children and parents can access learning worksheets, interactive flashcards, storybooks, and videos from iRead @ Home. These features can be accessed at

Aside from a new platform, iKidz can also look forward to iRead @ Home Season 2 as it will be kicking off this year with a new series of educational videos, including four (4) reading literacy videos.

Furthermore, partnering with different agencies and organizations, the campaign also aims to help its beneficiary, the Grade 1 students of Sto. Domingo Elementary School from Bay, Laguna through school supplies and in-kind donations.
