The Third Story Project creates and produces children’s books in Burmese and other Myanmar languages to distribute free of charge to children around Myanmar. The stories with positive messages are written and illustrated by Myanmar artists for a Myanmar audience. The Third Story Project has distributed over 182,000 books free of charge to children in cities and villages throughout Myanmar. We work with many local volunteer organizations to distribute books in every division and state in Myanmar. The organizations deliver the books directly to children and use storytelling to engage the kids in a dialogue about important issues.
