MoeMaKa initiated SFBC Book Drives for Burmese Children

MoeMaKa initiated SFBC Book Drives for Burmese Children
(4th July 2011)
SFBC Bookdrive was created by the Burmese community in San Francisco Bay Area to donate books to Burmese libraries and communities in need of them. The reason being that in Burma, children books and literature are needed in bulk and on a cheap scale, to encourage children's growth in knowledge and creativity, as well as learning English. In other countries, children books and literature are available to all. We need the same to in Burma. That is why we are lending our hands to do so.

  -to support and volunteer in educational and charity related works in needed community and neighbourhoods starting with our own Burmese community

 -to collect books (mainly children books) for libraries and communities ran by social support or educational organizations in Burma.
