“Since our first brainstorming session in 2016, I have been advising and supporting Khamkeo and the Reading Elephant Laos team in setting up the mobile children’s library in Bokeo as a fundraiser of Books for Laos association in Germany. Together with the great commitment of this highly motivated team, it was possible to create an extracurricular or school-accompanying educational offer for the promotion of reading, which is indispensable in the region and is recognised by the local population and the authorities. The greatest thanks and confirmation for all our efforts are always shining children’s eyes in the village primary schools, playing together, discovering stories, having fun with puppet shows and reading individually. All my visits on site, the participation and the further development of the project work are always enriching for me and worth every effort.”
