We may be new and small, but we took some really bold steps last year, including launching our start-up!
Here’s a look back at our involvement in programs, social issues we helped address in 2019, and a peek at what’s to come.
Before the year-end, we provided copies of We are Amazing!/Kami ay Magaling! to the National Library of Cambodia. By doing so, we not only aimed to add to its collection of quality children’s books and encourage reading but to also expose children to English, a widely spoken language and to Filipino, the language of Cambodia’s ASEAN neighbor and friend, the Philippines.
We also gave out copies of our books to children, did one-on-one storytelling to help foster the love and habit of reading, and encouraged parents to bond with and read to their children.
For sure 2020 will roll by pretty fast, but you can definitely expect our team to keep doing our best! We are set to add to our existing children’s book titles, make them available in Khmer, Chinese and other languages, have them in libraries and stores, and enjoyed and read by more children and families. We also have fun activities lined up for children, schools and families. So stay tuned!
Here’s to learning, bonding and problem-solving!
