For every £1 you donate, 85p goes directly to our projects and the other 15p helps us carry on our work.

With community consultation, we identify youth, novice monks, lay males & females without access to education & training & offer support to them in the form of educational opportunities. We offer English classes, general support and scholarships for secondary, life skills, tertiary and health education. Students are targeted through partnerships with temples & local institutions. Increased access to education can improve employment opportunities & stop the cycle of poverty inequality.

This project aims to have a positive impact on the development of Laos by increasing the choices, life-chances and employment opportunities of a diverse range of financially disadvantaged students. This is achieved through increased access to education. We aim to support both males and females with English lessons. To do this we need to rent classrooms to hold our lessons.

In Laos, opportunities for education are closely linked to Socio-economic status. This is exacerbated for rural students. As a result, males commonly come to Luang Prabang to access opportunities available at the temples and to become Novice Monks – this is not an option for females. Girls face a unique set of barriers impacting their access to education and employment. Traditions and entrenched gender roles mean many girls forgo education to stay home and support their families.

We rent 3 classrooms, which we use to deliver TEFL style English lessons to students who are unable to attend private English lessons due to a variety of different circumstances. We hold the majority of our free English classes for students of all ages, backgrounds and ethnicities, most notably our women’s empowerment classes and workshops, our classes for students from rural villages, and our vocational English classes for women and men looking to improve their employment opportunities.
