Village library devoted to Aboriginal children opens in Taiwan

(30 June 2015) Taiwan’s first library dedicated to Aboriginal children opened in Pingtung County’s Changjhih Township (長治) on Saturday. The Vusam Children’s Library hopes to devote more resources and time to Aboriginal children’s education.

According to Vusam organization founder Liang Ming-hui (梁明輝), the difficulties of travel and general lack of educational resources such as libraries, cram schools or daycare centers has made it difficult for students in Aboriginal villages to study outside of the classroom.

The Taipei Times has the story.
