The Buddhist library promotes the practice of compassion through its outreach work under Buddhist Library Asia Project (BLAP). Buddhist Library Asia Project is an apex body formed in 2013 to consolidate our outreach work which will be spread across Asia in the near future. Until now, our main focus was on?Cambodia through Project Cambodia that was initiated by the Buddhist library in 2005.
This is by far Project Cambodia’s main focus, providing clean drinking water to villages. Children in these villages used to share well water with farm animals and the project funds the building of concrete water tanks in various parts of Cambodia.
Many Cambodian children miss out on government schooling. Project Cambodia project sets up and administers schools and educational classes, providing non-formal education in the form of skills to help Cambodian children find employment in the growing economy. Classes include computer skills, English language and sewing.
Project Cambodia has a committed team of dentists, volunteer dentists and dental assistants who offer dental treatment to patients in various areas in Cambodia. This includes a mobile clinic to access to more rural areas of Cambodia.
