Following the success of the Words on Wheels (WoW) mobile library project in Hanoi, Vietnam, in 2011, as well as Phase One of WoW in Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) in 2014, Keppel Land has recently extended its support again for Phase Two of WoW (HCMC).
WoW is sponsored by Keppel Land, in partnership with the Singapore International Foundation (SIF) and the General Sciences Library (GSL), one of the largest libraries in South Vietnam. It aims to promote reading and learning among children in local communities via a mobile library.
The launch ceremony on 29 March 2018 was graced by representatives from SIF, GSL, and Keppel Land, including Mr Linson Lim, Keppel Land (Vietnam) President, and Ms Leow Siu Lin, Consul-General of Singapore in Ho Chi Minh City. The programme is expected to positively impact over 7,000 Vietnamese students in District 2 and District 8 of HCMC, including Keppel Land Vietnam's adopted Anh Phu Secondary School.
