Friends of Malaysia co-sponsored a reading program in the US on International Children's Day featuring Malaysian children's folktales.  Stories were read by more than 40 returned Peace Corps Volunteers in more than 30 states reaching 3500 elementary school students.  Children learned about Malaysian culture and Peace Corps experiences.


Friends of Malaysia was contacted by a 4th grade teacher in New Hampshire who had a new student from Malaysia.  The student spoke very little English so the teacher requested some children's books in the Malaysian language to ease the transition to learning English.  FOM members were able to provide several books for the student.
