The Open Hope Library Project donates libraries to improve children’s literacy. Children gain access to a beautiful school library providing fun and interesting children’s books that spark their imaginations and promote a lifelong love of reading. Having fun educational books easily available helps to encourage independent learning, intellectual curiosity, and a lifelong passion for reading.
All of our library donations have a teacher training component. This course covers how to properly loan books to students, how to use the children’s books in a classroom setting, and how to get the students involved in the maintenance of their library.
Donor volunteer involvement
At The Open Hope Library Project we are very proud of all our donor volunteers. Simply put, we could not do what we do without their support. Volunteerism at The Open Hope Library Project is real work. We encourage you to attend your library donation. You will leave a library donation tired, happy and feeling as if they made a positive impact in the lives of children attending a rural primary school.
Get your company involved
The Open Hope Library Project has worked with hundreds of corporate partners over the past ten years improving rural literacy in Asia. Each of these partnerships begins with our organization listening to the individual needs of each corporation, and then crafting a CSR program that truly fits into the culture of the company. This is a big reason why in 2015, 62% of our revenue came from repeat corporate donors.
