Enhancing Education in Laos

by Global Vision International Charitable Trust
Enhancing Education in Laos

Summary

This project aims to have a positive impact on the development of Laos by increasing the choices, life-chances and employment opportunities of a diverse range of financially disadvantaged students. This is achieved through increased access to education. We aim to support both males and females with English lessons. To do this we need to rent classrooms to hold our lessons.

Challenge

In Laos, opportunities for education are closely linked to Socio-economic status. This is exacerbated for rural students. As a result, males commonly come to Luang Prabang to access opportunities available at the temples and to become Novice Monks - this is not an option for females. Girls face a unique set of barriers impacting their access to education and employment. Traditions and entrenched gender roles mean many girls forgo education to stay home and support their families.

Solution

We rent 3 classrooms, which we use to deliver TEFL style English lessons to students who are unable to attend private English lessons due to a variety of different circumstances. We hold the majority of our free English classes for students of all ages, backgrounds and ethnicities, most notably our women's empowerment classes and workshops, our classes for students from rural villages, and our vocational English classes for women and men looking to improve their employment opportunities.

Long-Term Impact

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, and providing other educational materials to aid in education.
