PROJECT

In the province of Kompong Chhnang New Humanity organizes literacy trainings for the adults, dedicating special attention to women.

At the same time, it organizes professional trainings, in particular sewing and handcraft, in order to offer families the opportunity to start up new income generating activities and to improve their living conditions.

In order to promote reading among children and adults, NHI created the “Flying library”, a mobile library that every week visits 18 villages in the province of Kompong Chhnang. The flying library lends books and organizes reading activities addressed to the young public, in order to bring children to the world of reading.

CONTEXT

In Cambodia the illiteracy rate among adult population is 26,4%, that reaches the peack of 42% among women. In rural areas the situation is even worse, with an illiteracy rate of 50%.
Promoting reading and literacy at an informal level is fundamental in order to make people aware about the importance of studying and to promote access to primary education.
