The Library Dream Team in Siem Reap, Cambodia has hired 10 teens and young adults as part time librarians, and 5 as English Teachers.
By sponsoring a Librarian’s or English Teacher’s monthly salary, you are helping to prevent human trafficking and promote family preservation. In Cambodia, families are often separated for months at a time, or even indefinitely, when family members set off in search of work. It is tragically common for young people, desperate for money to meet their family’s most basic needs, to be coerced and forced into trafficking for labor or sexual exploitation.
You are making an incredible impact on the Librarians’ and English Teachers’ lives as well as on the entire village. The salary helps each Librarian and English Teacher care for their extended family. Sponsoring a librarian ensures that the library and books are properly cared for. During a librarian’s shift, the library provides a safe place for the village children, tweens, and teens to gather. The library empowers the village to increase literacy, and the ultimate goal is for English classes to be taught at each library. Learning English increases opportunity for work, and gives value to each person’s life. Rather than being viewed as a burden, an educated child or young adult brings hope to the family.
Join us today in preventing human trafficking, keeping families together, and promoting literacy and education! Sponsor a Librarian monthly at $12.50 or $25, or an English Teacher monthly at $10.
