Library of Hope #12: How Can We Help?
This year marks the 7th year that the Library of Hope project is conducted. For our 12th Library of Hope, we are making a point to go deeper into the villages that are secluded and out of reach. Deep villages hamper children's ability to attend school due to lack of transportation, travelling distance and road condition.
It is our goal in this project to fully furnished a Library of Hope in the community hall which will provide the children a safe and conducive place to read books and catch up on their studies. The LOH plays an especially important role for students who are unable to attend public school (due to lack of transport or dropped out) an avenue to carry out independent learning.
We are also partnering with Persatuan Komuniti Kasih Selangor to provide the village with volunteer teachers every Saturday to tutor in English and Mathematics.
