A splendid gesture for a splendid book

SIPAR is a voluntary group created in 1982 by Magali Petitmengin. The group is active in Cambodia, working to develop access to education.  To date, SIPAR has established 180 libraries containing 2,000 books in the Khmer language, set up 38 Education for All centres and distributed 50,000 books to schools. SIPAR has also put 7 mobile libraries on the road, touring deprived suburbs and organising events to promote books and reading.



SIPAR is also a publisher in its own right and has published 66 titles for young readers, the best possible way to revive writing and literature in Cambodia. Les Editions du Sipar is behind the publication of The Little Prince in Khmer, a book now in its fifth edition with over 9,000 copies sold.



Now this edition is on sale through the Little Prince online store – with all proceeds going to SIPAR to help finance its social and educational projects.
