Literature is my Utopia. Here I am not disenfranchised. No barrier of the senses shuts me out from the sweet, gracious discourse of my book friends. They talk to me without embarrassment or awkwardness.

- Helen Keller, 1880-1968.

 
Ho Phong Library

Our first library is being constructed in the middle of the shrimp and rice farms of Ho Phong. Designed to reflect the native archetecture of the region it will have the river behind it and the main road joining Ca Mau and Ho Phong in front of it. It is located between two large schools and a daily flow of children and commerce pass by everyday.

More than simply shelves full of books, the library will offer a range of free services.
