The Library Project Welcomes Jackie Ng and Donn Garton to its Board of Directors

The Library Project is thrilled to welcome Jackie Ng and Donn Garton to its Board of Directors. Jackie Ng has been living and working in Hong Kong for the past seven years. She is an in-house lawyer at Ernst & Young. Much of her personal time is spent working with various non profit organisations focusing on education, human rights and climate change. Jackie was one of the founding members and is a board member of Bring Me A Book Hong Kong, a non profit organisation which donates libraries to community centres, schools and other charitable institutions in Hong Kong. Jackie hopes to expand her involvement with library donations into China, and to share with The Library Project her experience gained from the work done so far in Hong Kong.

Donn has lived in Vietnam for nearly 4 years and is currently in charge of Alive Interactive Media, a 40 person design studio located in Ho Chi Minh City that produces 3D digital content for video game makers like Electronic Arts, Sony and Rockstar Games. His work with Alive has allowed him to travel extensively throughout Asia as well as the U.S., Canada and the U.K. Donn overseas all aspects of Alive from operations, strategy, funding and sales.
