Whiteboards, Water, Wheelbarrows and Cement

Donations received from the Charitable Trust has been sent to several of the temples where GVI volunteers teach English.

One of the temples that was a recipient was Wat Pha-O. This temple is outside Luang Prabang in a rural environment. It is a large and important temple that is home to over 270 Novices. The donation was presented to Monk Ongeo, the Abbot of the temple. Monk Ongeo stated that this donation would be put to the use of digging a bore to access water. The photos show Monk Ongeo with the donation and the work that has already commenced in digging the bore.

Other smaller donations included whiteboards for 2 other temples – Wat Na Luang and Wat Mano, and a third whiteboard was given to one of our Lao teaching partners, Mr Nii who conducts English classes in his home village in a traditional Hmong house.

A further donation was given to one of our favourite temples, Wat Pasa Viet, for the purchase of a wheelbarrow and cement for the Novices to firstly make the bricks and secondly build a fence on a section of the temple’s property.

The remainder of the Charitable Trust Challenge money will be held in reserve for future needs of sponsorships and scholarships to students and general support for the temples. Sincere thanks to all the volunteers, friends and families that donated to our Charitable Trust Challenge. Your money is doing good work to benefit others
