Let us know about materials: Many of our most well loved books and DVDs are English or bilingual materials specific for the Lao, Hmong and Khmu cultures, published abroad and previously unknown in Laos.

Send a gift of book covers:

Books are rare in Laos; some of the books we put in our libraries will not be published again after the first run, others are old books we find second-hand, all are fragile and do not last long without heavy, plastic, self binding covers. Our current need is for Easy Cover ll size 9 ½” by 6 1/2”

Donate your used digital equipment

We are always in need of used digital cameras for our photography program @ My Library. We also love used smart phones, tablets and laptops. These we load with digital learning materials and send out to libraries and to teachers in rural areas.

Donate your miles

While our air travel needs are limited to travel between Laos and the US for Board meetings and Laos and Bangkok for purchasing, the expense saved with a complimentary ticket makes a real difference.
