Our results so far
Since our debut in 2000, we have published more than 205 titles in 17 different collections, with over 2 437 299 copies. We also helped young Cambodian authors and illustrators to launch their careers by organizing training programs in writing and illustrating and by publishing their works.
Why have we decided to focus on youth literature?
Cambodian youth is Cambodia’s future! Giving children easy access to reading equals giving them access to knowledge and a better future… and that’s all our work is about!
Ten years ago, the Cambodian publishing sector was at an embryonic stage and no publisher offered books for young children. SIPAR decided to fill this gap by publishing its own books and focused on providing young readers with entertaining, captivating books adapted to their age, reading level, and interests.
