This magnificent tourism of Ternate is not equal to conditions of marginalized children who live in the city of Ternate. There are at least 50 kids who live in vulnerable groups without enough access to studies as well as their time to playing around. They have limited time to maximize their reading interest. The book is expensive, and the libraries are only available in school or in public place, but only open in office hour. This condition triggers some youth to raise a program named 'Literasi Jalanan' (in English means Streets Literacy). Literasi Jalanan is a place for providing the books and access for the marginalized kids..
