Challenge

Poverty and inequality cannot be fought without education. Poor children around the world rarely receive the high-quality education they deserve. School libraries can help to redress this imbalance. Cambodia lost most of its librarians and libraries during the genocide of the 1970s. The country's libraries are still trying to recover. Many small villages are miles away from the closest library.

Solution

We want to improve rural primary education in Cambodia and provide more opportunities for children to learn by providing primary schools with libraries. One school library in one village can make a big difference to children and their community.

Long-Term Impact

We built our first library in 2019 at Turl Laveang Primary School in rural Battambang Province. The children, parents, and teachers of Turl Laveang Primary School use the library all the time. Parents are encouraging their children to study and read. The children love the library and are asking us to send more books. In our opinion, one of the best ways to change a country and raise it out of poverty is one library at one school in one village at a time.
