Ban Phao School is in need of urgent attention with some classrooms little more than an open hut. This project will bring about the renovation of Ban Phao and two other similar schools.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Ban Phao School is one of many schools in rural Laos suffering from neglect and lack of funds. Parts of this school were built 20 years ago from materials donated by families of the village. As a result of age and weather, these classrooms have become unsafe for the student population. Parents, students and teachers of Ban Phao and two other villages have requested assistance to renovate and equip the school.
How will this project solve this problem?
This project helps three schools. Your donations will meet part of the costs, with the rest to be met by villagers. Total cost is $75,000. SEDA is requesting $7,600 for furniture & supplies; $6500 for water filters & computers; $12,500 for rebuilding
Potential Long Term Impact
The renovation of these three schools will provide a prospering place of learning for children from over 10 rural villages. Access to improved education will in turn give villagers an improved chance of a sustainable and productive income.
