Laguna Phuket’s “Fully Booked!” Mobile Learning Centre

Laguna Phuket’s “Fully Booked!” Mobile Learning Centre

In addition to our observations, the National Statistical Office Thailand reported in 2008 that more than 14% of Thai people can’t read, and over one third of Thais don’t read for pleasure or self education. 

Our experience, coupled with these alarming numbers, has compelled us to initiate the “Fully Booked!” project which aims to re-introduce reading, the basis of self-empowerment. The Centre will provide a 2-in-1 service as a library and a classroom, and will service kindergarten and primary school students in rural Phuket and nearby areas.
 
Our goal is to raise 2 million Baht this year to purchase books, learning supplies and equipment, and a small truck with an especially designed container with library and fold out classroom functions. We will continue to fundraise in 2013 for ongoing maintenance and monthly operational expenses of the centre
 
Laguna Phuket has donated 1 million Baht to jumpstart this initiative, and to date we have raised over 400,000 Baht. Help us to reach our goal and share your love for reading by clicking here to donate.
