Mobile library project for children in Myanmar / Reading promotion for children who never read book

Our project brings picture books to children in rural areas of Myanmar via mobile library. As a legacy of the military regime, picture books, which enhance imagination and critical thinking, are still not common in Myanmar. By journeying with characters and immersing themselves in the world of picture books, children can nurture their communication skills, learn to sympathize with others and critically assess the world they are placed in. This is essential to create peace in the nation with diverse ethnicities. Our project provides 14 public libraries in East Bago region with mobile library motorcycles as well as 500 picture books.
