Celebrating the New Library at Osamaki Primary School

Libraries play an important role in fostering a culture of literacy and learning. Recognizing that many primary schools face challenges in providing adequate learning materials and environments due to resource constraints, our initiative seeks to bridge this gap. We aim to transform libraries into modern, functional spaces that support the educational curriculum and encourage students to develop critical reading, writing, and thinking skills.



We are happy to announce the successful opening of the renovated library at Osamaki Primary School. This significant milestone marks the fourth library renovation in our ongoing series of projects. The event symbolized the collaborative spirit and dedication to education from various sectors, including district and commune representatives, and the Department of Education, all joining us in celebration.



Highlights of the Renovation Include:

  • Child-Friendly Design: We have outfitted each library with accessible, engaging furniture to create an inviting atmosphere for young learners.
  • Technology Integration: The addition of 25-30 tablets loaded with educational software, including the ‘Let’s Read’ online library of Khmer books, alongside a laptop for librarian use, enriches the learning resources available to students.
  • Extensive Book Collections: With the addition of over 1,000 hardcover books, we’ve significantly broadened the scope for reading and exploration.

To complement the physical renovations, we’ve implemented a robust training program for teachers and librarians, aimed at maximizing the utilization of these enriched educational resources and technologies.

Recognizing the crucial role of family in education, we’ve boosted parental involvement and ensured that the libraries offer full-day access to the entire community. This approach benefits not just the students but the entire community, by offering a valuable resource for learning and development.

We extend our deepest gratitude to all our partners, supporters, and the community for making this vision a reality.
