Books for Asia: Choose a Book. Change a Life.

Part 3 of 6: Bangladesh: Choose a Book. Change a Life.

Among the nomadic river peoples of Bangladesh, the students at Subornogram Schools had never seen a children's book. So we asked each student to choose their favorite Bangla storybook, and then we gave it to them.

Books for Asia is putting books in the hands of people who need them most. Now it's your turn.

Were inviting everyone to share in the spirit of giving. Simply vote for your favorite title from the selection of classic storybooks, pass the word along to your friends (even tell them to vote for your favorite if youd like!), and well do the rest. Once voting ends, we will deliver the storybook that wins the most votes to the students at Subornogram Schools. When the books have been delivered, well send you a link to a video showing the children receiving their new books.
