Fully Booked! Mobile Learning Center (MLC)


In addition to our observations, the National Statistical Office Thailand reported in 2008 that more than 14% of Thai people cannot read, and over one third of Thais do not read for pleasure or self education. Our experience, coupled with these alarming numbers, has compelled us to initiate the “Fully Booked! Mobile Learning Centre” project which aims to re-introduce reading, the basis of self-empowerment. The Mobile Learning Centre was launched in April 2014 with the objective to provide a 2-in-1 service as a library and a classroom to increase the rate and quality of literacy among pilot schools in Phuket and neighboring provinces.

Our program start-up was funded by 2.2 million Baht fundraised from Laguna Phuket sports events and another 2.2 million Baht matching fund from Banyan Tree Global Foundation. To-date MLC visits schools 4 days per week, benefiting 600 students and 50 teachers in Phuket and Pang-Nga.
