Birzebbuga, Malta (2013) | Funding for an Elementary School Library

600 Children Enjoy Books and Reading Events

600 Children Enjoy Books and Reading Events Thanks to Oiltanking’s Donation

Supporting local communities is a priority on the Mediterranean island of Malta as elsewhere, so the site has promoted youth education for many years by financially supporting an elementary school library in Birzebbuga, which is attended by 600 children. Oiltanking’s donation went to purchasing approx. 1,000 books in English and Maltese. The school also offers reading events with parents and other volunteers to encourage students to begin reading at a young age.
