World Vision Cambodia works with over 100 rural primary schools that currently have no libraries.

This year, for World Book Day World Vision Cambodia is raising funds to provide children with the books they need to thrive.

Together, with your help, we want to fill school libraries across Cambodia with the reading materials they need to provide children with a quality education. When filled with books, libraries encourage school attendance and enable thousands of Cambodian children to experience the joy of reading.

We’re attempting to raise enough funds to purchase 12,333 books, which when staked in a pile will be 37 meters high; the same height as the Independence monument in Phnom Penh.

Ask friends, family and colleagues to help and donate today.

Because every child deserves an education, a future, a book. 

At the end of the campaign, we will purchase much-needed books to fill libraries in primary schools throughout Cambodia. Like the one in Leuk Daek ADP. School student Vichyra (pictured) says, "I have learned from reading a book about how to plant morning glory, cabbage, tomato, and white radish."

Books provide children with entertainment and learning experiences vital to their education and growth.  Thank you for your support

Savchon Chan, a mother of 3 used to spend all of her time in the rice fields earning a living for their family. "I didn’t have time taking care of my kids. So sometimes I have no choice but let my son skip from school a few days to look after his younger sisters,” says Savchon. “Due to tiredness and busyness, we never be able to help our children learn at home. I need a rest. And we also could not do anything else beside that farming." World Vision first started working with Savchon's community in 2002 and since then the Chan family have adopted modern farming practices which have given them more time and higher yields. As well as having learnt about nutrition, hygiene and sanitation to ensure they're eating the right foods and reducing their risk of getting sick from diarrhea, typhoid, dengue fever and flu which the children previously contracted frequently. We a committed to helping more family's like Savchon's and with your donation we will be able to provide more books to children in need, so children like Savchon's can learn at home. These books are so valuable to a child's growth and development and with World Vision's support, families can invest in their children's education. [Savchon's oldest child reading with her Grandma].
