This project provides children, youth and adults access to inclusive quality education as they engage in formal and non-formal learning to gain knowledge and that are useful in their lives. In particular, it aims to improve the quality of education through training teachers and closely following up with the teachers and students in the village schools where our partners work.
WHY SUPPORT THIS
Ethnic minority people in the northern provinces of Laos have the lowest levels of education, overall health, nutrition and income while having some of the highest rates of drug addiction and poverty. Our partners focus on improvement in quality of life for these poor, remote communities by engaging them and local government partners in addressing obstacles to and opportunities for development, particularly in the areas of education, health, environment and livelihoods. Ownership of the development process enhances the educational achievements of the school students and improves literacy and lifeskills. There is high participation of the community and strong community-based leadership.
