Programs

Laos Literacy Project Inc provides funding to Big Brother Mouse in Luang Praban,Laos. The web site is Bigbrothermouse.org. Big Brother Mouse, a Lao-based, Lao-owned project was started in 2006 publishing "books that make literacy fun!" Big Brother Mouse is also publishing books that provide older readers with access to the information, ideas, and pleasure people in many countries take for granted. Until now, few books were published in the Lao Language. Many people in Lao villages never saw a book. Big Brother Mouse is already changing that, but we still have far to go. We're not just a publisher. We give hands-on experience to young people as they learn new skills: writing, editing, translating, computers, and organizing events. We're also developing effective new ways to distribute books in a country where currently, there's no good system for that including setting up village libraries and book swaps.
