Indiegogo Campaign Launched for Let’s Read! Asia

By Maryann Yin 

Books for Asia has launched an indiegogo campaign for the “Let’s Read! Asia.” They hope to raise $50,000 for this literacy-themed project.

If the campaign proves successful, the team will start off by bringing this digital library to five schools and two mobile libraries in Cambodia. We’ve embedded a video about the project above.

Here’s more about the campaign web page: “Many children in Asia do not have access to engaging, colorful storybooks that inspire a lifelong love of reading. Often, school textbooks are the only reading material available as children’s books are too expensive for the average family, especially in rural areas. Realizing this great need, Books for Asia is launching Let’s Read!, a project that uses low-cost technology to enable underprivileged children to attain the most essential of childhood experiences – the magic of becoming lost in a story.”
