All Welcome!

In a village school in rural Cambodia, where there is only one teacher teaching nearly 200 students from four villages and not enough basic stationery and textbooks to go around, we built them a library. This seminar shares the process from conceptualizing to implementation of choosing English books for this village school in a Khmer-speaking local community, including all the unresolved logistics questions and ideological implications. As part of a bigger project under a Hong Kong-based NGO , Project Little Dream, the seminar would also share the other projects during our last visit over Christmas, such as teacher training workshops.
