Who we are
Book Aid Malaysia is a voluntary and privately driven initiative aimed to promote a reading habit for young adults and school children. We are targeting children from rural areas, urban poor and those from poor family. We believe if children read books, it open them to all new perspective, opportunities and possibilities.
Studies show that reading for pleasure makes a big difference to children’s educational performance. Evidence suggests that children who read for enjoyment every day not only perform better in reading tests than those who don’t, but also develop a broader vocabulary, increased general knowledge and a better understanding of other cultures.In fact, reading for pleasure is more likely to determine whether a child does well at school than their social or economic background. With this small contribution from us we hope to make a big change in the life of children.
