The One Million Words Organization’s mission is to supply curriculum based textbooks and fictional works to young learners and schools in remote provinces in PDR Laos, Vietnam, Myanmar, Hong Kong, PR China, and the Philippines, with a special focus on underprivileged children aged 4 to 14. One Million Words Organization has been established with the mission to finance, source, and supply new printed books, in local languages or in a second language as per demand at the time, with a word count in excess of 1,000,000 words. Each country will have only one project running at any given time. To achieve our mission we aim to raise $30,000 for each of our country projects through fundraising events, crowd sourcing, and support from our sponsors and partners. These funds will be solely used for the acquisition of quality new academic reading resources for ‘economically challenged’ schools and remote provinces in our five key target areas of Asia.
