Let's build libraries in Myanmar. Let's start by building a community library in Myitkyina, Kachin State.
Myanmar is still reeling from the effects of displacement and conflict. Most children in Myanmar have never seen a picture book. We can remedy this by helping build a community library in Kachin State.
In a country where poverty forces a lot of children to drop out of school in their first grade and where only 10% of those who started are able to finish high school, the effort to help educate children matters.
The library we shall first build will not only promote literacy and education. The villagers of Myitkyina will also use it as the center for community gatherings. For a community that looks on to books and education as a source of hope, the library we will help buiild will empower the entire village.
Books, education, hope and empowerment. How powerful is that? Together we can build a library for $11,000. We can build this library in Kachin. Can you pitch in and make this dream a reality?
