Apart from the Coconut School, there is also another small group that is giving back to Cambodia by supporting young Cambodian readers: The Book Cafe, Battambang.
While the Coconut School is now a bit established, The Book Cafe has just begun its journey. As it is, the organization is starting its outreach in Battambang.
About The Book Cafe
The group is a non-profit organization that helps the young readers of Cambodia by providing free reading materials, a workspace and reading area, as well as education sessions and literary outreach.
The organization is relatively young, having started their efforts in 2017, and is currently operating on a shoestring budget. Much of the operations is fueled by the efforts of hardworking and enthusiastic volunteers.
Fundraising for the Cafe
The Book Cafe is currently running some fundraising efforts in order to manage maintenance costs for the cafe space.
