We welcome the New Year in Laos! Pi Mai (New Year) celebrations begin in mid-April and continue for three days. In a country that relies heavily on tourism the past year has been challenging, as it has been throughout the world. The new year brings a new start and optimism for the year ahead.
The first day is considered the last day of the year. It’s when people clean and prepares for the days ahead. The second day is known as the day of no day. It’s neither part of the previous year or part of the next year. The third day is the first day of the Laos new year and celebrations include ceremonies for luck and prosperity.
Prosperity means flourishing and thriving. It’s health and happiness as well as developing skills that can serve you well in the future. In the previous Laos year, your donations have supported students with their education through resources and school fees. Access to education leads to wider work opportunities as well as an opening the door to further education.
As we move into the Laos New Year we welcome your continued. It is your support allows us to provide learning opportunities for students and opportunities for students to become teachers. We thank you for your continued contribution and commitment to the program in Laos and look forward to working together to continue to provide educational opportunities.
