GETSET-GO NFP
May 18, 2012

GETSET-GO.org has a Library for Women in Siem Reap Cambodia. It is wonderful - and pretty much the only place women there can go to get the education they could not get when they were girls. They are very determined to give women high quality educational resources, instead of the out-dated or surplus books you often see donated to poor countries. They even have e-books (like Kindles) and really cool interactive learning tools. It's a small organization right now with little funding, but they plan to open a network of libraries in the future. I was so happy to see this resource during my visit to Angkor Wat. It is really one of a a kind and so desperately needed by women there.

Well, they are really small and don't have a real fund raising team. But it's a catch 22 I suppose - they don't have the money to recruit people to get them money...
