Books in MYANMAR
A few years ago I was lucky enough to visit Myanmar, a beautiful country with lovely people. The International School I visited helped to produce books for local children through Yinthway, a Myanmar organization dedicated to bringing books to children.

If you travel to Myanmar, be sure to take along pencils, sharpener, paper and books. Colorful picture books, especially nonfiction with little text, will be a welcome gift to many.
