“excellent”

my friend and I went there to donate 2 dollar, they buy books and distribute them by boat to rural villages which is fantastic, the staff was so friendly and helpful helping us in selecting the right books, It's always good to give a hand , isn't it? so don't miss it.

“good thing to give children a chance”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

Just donate for charity. Give children a chance to read a good book and get some (extra) education.

It is a pitty that, the tourist trap called Luang Prabang, wants money for every wat, stair, aso you want to visit. Otherwise we could have donate more.

“Very rewarding visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2012

We went to the library to sponsor few books and decided to come back later to tutor local kids. Most of the kids just enjoyed talking to us, few needed help with English homework. They were all high school students from remote villages who studied in LP. Some of them were amazed when we showed them photos of Vientiane because they never seen any. They have few computers and the Internet in the library but they never heard about the google maps and didn't know that you can "walk" for free the streets of New York or Paris.
We still have few days left in LP and will definitely spend our time tutoring rather than sipping java at the cafe.

“Buy a book and help the kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2012

Here you can buy books(very cheap) to be given to children in villages to help with their education. A great idea in a country where education is badly needed.
