Laos is a country with education inequality, particularly affecting the poorer communities and young girls. Due to education in Laos only being compulsory for 5 years, the education they do receive is often poor quality and under-resourced. This project aims to tackle the education inequality in these areas by providing quality educational resources, teacher training and improved facilities to encourage children to continue their studies into higher education.
This project has limited classroom space and can therefore only support a limited number of students. Yet they have a high demand and waiting list of students who like to join the program and continue with their education.
Therefore the team would like to build an additional classroom so that they can offer more spaces to students on the waiting list wishing to continue with their education.
The long term impact of this project is to work towards increasing access to quality education for all students regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, or religious background by providing a place to study free classes in English and other life skills workshops, as well as providing quality educational materials and resources to aid in education. This is directly contributing to SDG 4-Quality Education and SDG 10-Reduced Inequalities.
