International School Partnerships

International School Partnerships

Welcome to The Library Project, which is dedicated to improving literacy in rural areas of China. Our collaboration with International Schools is fundamental to our mission, offering educational institutions a platform to impact underserved communities significantly. This initiative allows school administrators, teachers, and students to make meaningful social contributions. By partnering with us, your institution can play a crucial role in advancing educational resources in rural areas. Join us in this vital endeavor to uplift communities through education.

Students as Champions of Literacy

As a student, you have the unique power to drive change. Your involvement with The Library Project can make a significant impact on improving literacy in rural China. We invite you to become literacy ambassadors by participating in our programs and spreading awareness within your school and community. Whether it’s through joining a student club supporting our cause or initiating literacy-focused projects, your actions can inspire others and contribute to a larger global movement. Your enthusiasm and creativity in supporting these initiatives are vital in helping us achieve our goal of providing access to education for all.

Innovative Fundraising: Your Ideas, Our Mission

Fundraising can be both fun and impactful when driven by innovative ideas. We encourage you to think creatively – organize book-themed events, literacy quizzes, or a read-a-thon. These activities raise funds and engage your peers in understanding the importance of literacy. The Library Project will support your efforts by providing resources and guidance to make your event successful. Your initiatives raise necessary funds and build a sense of community and shared purpose. Every book purchased and every dollar raised brings us one step closer to bridging the literacy gap in rural areas.

Integrating The Library Project into Your Curriculum

As a teacher, your role in shaping young minds is critical. Incorporating The Library Project into your teaching can enrich your students’ educational experiences. We encourage you to use our resources to educate students about global literacy challenges and the importance of community service. Integrating discussions on these topics into your curriculum can foster a deeper understanding and empathy among students. Furthermore, collaborating with The Library Project can offer practical experiences in organizing events and understanding the workings of non-profits, enhancing real-world learning for your students.

Leading Fundraising Initiatives for Rural Literacy

Teachers can be pivotal in orchestrating school-wide campaigns to support The Library Project. We offer a range of fundraising ideas, from book drives to themed events, that can be adapted to your classroom setting. These activities raise funds and increase awareness about the importance of literacy in rural areas. We provide materials and support to help you organize these initiatives effectively. Engaging students in these campaigns can be a powerful way to teach them about philanthropy and social responsibility. Your leadership in these efforts will be instrumental in making a real difference in the lives of many.

Librarians: Key Players in Promoting Global Literacy

As librarians at International Schools, you are uniquely positioned to significantly contribute to The Library Project’s mission of improving rural literacy in China. Your expertise in literature, information management, and educational resources makes you an invaluable partner in this endeavor.

Educational Collaboration and Resource Sharing

Your role can extend to collaborating with teachers to create educational programs that highlight the importance of literacy and global citizenship. You can organize workshops, storytelling sessions, and reading clubs that engage students at your school and create materials that can be shared with rural libraries.

Maximizing Your School’s Role in Community Development

Partnering with The Library Project offers a unique opportunity for your school to contribute significantly to rural literacy in China. This collaboration not only aids in developing vital educational resources but also positions your school as a leader in global social responsibility. By engaging with us, your institution becomes a part of a larger narrative that champions education and community upliftment. We encourage school administrators to consider the long-term benefits of this partnership, including enhanced community image, enriched student experiences, and a tangible contribution to global literacy.

Initiating Collaboration with The Library Project

To begin your school’s journey with The Library Project, we invite administrators to initiate a dialogue with us. We offer guidance on integrating your school into our programs, including organizing fundraising events, educational activities, and awareness campaigns. Your involvement can be customized to align with your school’s capacity and interests. We provide all necessary support and resources to ensure a successful partnership. For further information and to discuss potential collaboration, please contact us directly. Your proactive steps towards this partnership will forge new paths in education and literacy for needy communities.

1,489,000 Children Benefited

To date, we have impacted over one million children by providing access to libraries in their rural primary schools. The beautiful thing about a school library is it lives, it stays just as relevant on day one as it will ten years into the future. Because of this new children annually gain access to these beautiful libraries and the total impact a library has on a community grows annually.

1,485 Reading Rooms

Reading Rooms provide an entire school with access to high-quality educational books. The schools that receive Reading Rooms are generally larger schools in rural communities. These schools have between 200-900 students in total, who each gain access to the school’s Reading Room.

6,711 Reading Corners

Reading Corners provides an entire classroom with access to high-quality STEAM books (science, technology, engineering, art, and math). Reading Corners go directly into the classroom, providing students and teachers easy access to their library.

45,000 Teachers Trained

Training is critical to the long-term success of a library donation. Teachers at rural elementary schools receive training on how to manage their new libraries. This training course is the first day of a one-year relationship between The Library Project team that ensures each and every library we donate operates at the highest level. Training is a critical part of every library donation.

4,800 Literacy Bags

Literacy Bags provide a child with access to high-quality educational books. These books are theirs, and theirs alone, to be brought home.  These books often represent the first steps in having a home library.

2,345,000 Books Donated

The Library Project provides early exposure to engaging and interesting STEAM material, giving children the opportunity to spark their interest in these fields. Our STEAM resources are education-based, so children will always be learning practical knowledge through the items in our libraries. We have books that teach the engineering behind construction vehicles to stories that teach why fruit seeds won’t grow in your belly. By providing access to STEAM resources we give children in rural communities a chance to dive into the world in which they live in a new, fascinating way.

300 Active Partner Schools

We work with small elementary schools in rural communities in China and Vietnam. These small schools exist in truly remote areas, where infrastructure is lacking. These schools, often called satellite schools, exist so that every child has the opportunity to attend school. Without these schools, children would have to travel long distances with limited infrastructure to get to a larger school in the city center.

Core Values

Core Values

The Library Project’s Core Values ground our programs, the libraries we provide, and the training that we conduct. They guide us through every decision that we make. Take some time to learn more about our Core Values, along with a few examples of how we put these into practice.

STEAM Education

The Library Project provides early exposure to engaging and interesting STEAM material, giving children the opportunity to spark their interest in these fields. Our STEAM resources are education-based, so children will always be learning practical knowledge through the items in our libraries. We have books that teach the engineering behind construction vehicles to stories that teach why fruit seeds won’t grow in your belly. By providing access to STEAM resources we give children in rural communities a chance to dive into the world in which they live in a new, fascinating way.

Girls’ Education

Young girls having access to STEAM education is crucial for our future, but it’s especially important for young girls in Asia. We are conscious and selective with the STEAM resources we donate. Our libraries contain STEAM books that show young girls as equals and leaders in STEAM fields. Our books show girls as fitness and nutrition experts, chemists, nurses, doctors, and astronomers. By providing girls equal access to STEAM educational resources, we are able to spark their imaginations at an early age and give them exposure to STEAM to help improve their confidence in the field.

Inclusion & Diversity

We live in a diverse, beautiful world full of challenges that require knowledge, critical thinking, creativity, and bravery. Our mission is to give children access to books that will not only help improve their literacy but help educate them for the future.

Our libraries contain books that promote gender equality, kindness, and bravery. The selected books teach about topics such as science, engineering, and the environment.

Promoting World Peace

We donate books that promote world peace by teaching kindness, friendship, and bravery. One book, in particular, features a blind Little Red Riding Hood who bandages up the wolf bound to eat her. The mean wolf learns the true meaning of kindness, even when he didn’t deserve it. We also have books that show children what it looks like to be kind to family members. We hope that the more kindness we show to children, the kinder our world will be in the future.

Protecting the Environment

Our books about the environment are engaging and interesting. They inspire children to interact with the world around them in a respectful way. Our books also empower children by educating them with facts, giving them the confidence to know they are capable of making positive changes for our environment.

Local Publishers & Languages

We donate 100% local language children’s books. This makes reading more natural, fun, and engaging for children. Local language books are familiar and inviting, which encourages children to read more often. The books we donate are always published in the working country. Our libraries contain a majority of local authors and illustrators. We strive not only to provide children access to great books but to support local artists and publishers in the process. Further, it is valuable when children see authors and illustrators with names like their own. It’s a subtle reminder that if they wish to be artists, they can succeed just like others in their own country.

Teacher Training

Teachers are important, and for that reason, The Library Project provides a comprehensive teacher training course at each school we work with. The course provides teachers with ways to use books in their classrooms, how to work with other teachers to use their school library, and educates teachers on how to create a system for their school to allow students to check-out books to read at home. We have found that this training course results in 94% of our libraries being effectively used on a daily-to-weekly basis after the first year.

Monitoring, Evaluation & Reporting

The Library Project conducts one-year of monitoring & evaluation at every library that we donate and program that we conduct. Through this reporting, we are able to provide additional training and support when needed. Measuring our results is at the core of all our programs.

Our Book Content Core Values

The core values guiding the content of our books are fundamental to The Library Project. These values shape the libraries we establish, the programs we offer, and the training we conduct. Each decision we make is informed by these principles, ensuring our efforts align with our mission to enhance education and enrich lives.

STEAM Education: We prioritize books that advance knowledge in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics, equipping young minds with the skills necessary for future innovation.

Inclusion & Diversity: Our selection reflects diverse perspectives and backgrounds, promoting inclusivity and understanding across different cultures and communities.

Protecting the Environment: We include books emphasizing environmental awareness and sustainability, encouraging the next generation to be stewards of our planet.

Girls’ Education: We are committed to empowering girls through education, providing books that inspire confidence and emphasize the importance of girls’ academic achievements.

Promoting World Peace: Our collections foster understanding and cooperation among young readers, highlighting peace as a fundamental value.

These core values ensure that our libraries are more than just collections of books—they are dynamic resources that foster critical thinking, empathy, and a commitment to positive global citizenship.

Parent Literacy Training, Monitoring, and Ongoing Support

The Library Project provides comprehensive training for parents at each literacy bag donation. We see this as essential to every donation.

Our parent training course focuses on properly managing a new home library and ensuring it stays in good condition. It provides parents with ways to use books in their homes and educates them on creating a literacy system for their children to read at home.

Where We Donate Reading Corners

The Home

Recognizing the importance of the home environment in a child’s literacy development, The Library Project offers Literacy Bags and STEAM Boxes to families. These resources encourage reading and learning at home, focusing on engaging children and their parents. We provide training for parents to effectively utilize these materials and foster a supportive reading culture at home. By empowering parents with the tools and knowledge to support their children’s education, we help create a positive and proactive learning environment. Our initiative ensures that learning continues beyond school and community settings, reinforcing the importance of literacy in everyday life.

Orphanages

Orphanages face unique challenges in providing consistent educational opportunities for children. The Library Project addresses this by donating Literacy Bags, STEAM Boxes, and libraries filled with high-quality books in the local language, as well as conducting literacy programs tailored to the needs of these settings. We also provide training for administrators to ensure the sustainable use of the libraries and encourage reading among the children. Through our efforts, we strive to create a nurturing learning environment that supports children’s educational and emotional development in orphanages.

Elementary Schools, Kindergartens & Community Centers

In most cases, The Library Project partners with elementary Schools, kindergartens, and community centers to distribute Literacy Bags and STEAM Boxes to students and families. Because of these strong partners, we can keep our program costs low.
