Early Childhood Literacy

Bookworm has set up two early childhood centres for hill tribe children. Sunshine Kids Center and Little Smiles Center both focus on teaching children basic literacy in preparation for primary school away from their villages. Bookworm makes monthly visits to both centres to deliver supplies and assess teaching and learning.

Be a part of securing the future for our organisation

Bookworm Foundation has achieved amazing things thanks to the tremendous amount of support received since the beginning. Years on, Bookworm has reached a different stage of operation. Now, more than ever, we need to expand our support membership base in order that we have a bigger, better and deeper foundation upon which to build our work, both now and for the future. We have come up with an annual support membership scheme that we hope is attractive to a range of interested supporters. Each member will pay an annual membership fee of 30 USD or 25 Euros, and receive quarterly newsletter as a small token of appreciation from Thailand.

See our Support Us page for more information on how to subscribe. For all questions regarding membership, please email us at bookworm@alwaysreadingcaravan.org. We really hope you consider joining as a member of Always Reading Caravan.
