As one of the world’s poorest countries with the sad distinction – and lingering dangers – of also being the most heavily bombed country in the world, simply checking out a book from one’s local library in Laos isn’t as straightforward a process as in more prosperous and secure nations. In this mountainous and vastly rural backwater of merely a few million people, many Lao villages are in fact so remote they can only be accessed by boat. Still, the concept of making books and other essential tools for learning and documenting readily accessible via libraries is of utmost importance to tiny landlocked Laos. Here’s a look at two non-profit organizations, The Language Project and Community Learning International, and their good work helping shape a brighter future for the people of Laos through the creation of libraries uniquely geared towards the needs of their end users.
