Dear Supporters,

 

Another busy quarter for the GVI Trust in Laos! Over the last 3 months we were able to provide scholarships for over 50 Lao students studying in Luangprabang, Vientiane, China and Thailand. In this way, The GVI Trust was able to contribute towards UNSDG#4, Quality Education, particularly key indicator: 4.B- “By 2020, substantially expand globally the number of scholarships available to developing countries, in particular least developed countries…” We are also working towards UNSDG #5, Gender Equality, by endeavouring to have equal numbers of males and females sponsored. This year, our sponsorships are nearly half and half with 56% male and 44% female sponsorships. We are also very excited to announce that we were able to support 2 female students to study abroad in China. These students received a partial scholarship, however the full cost of the funds needed for accommodation, food, visas and medical bills were not covered by the government scholarship. 

 

Overall, the GVI Trust has greatly contributed directly to UN SDG #4, Quality Education, and it’s indicator: 4.B, increasing the number of scholarships available, through its continued support of increasing access to education for Lao students; and UN SDG #5 by increasing the number of female students who have access to education through scholarships.

 

The GVI Trust, in partnership with our generous donors, helped to provide the excess the girls needed so thank you all for the unwavering support.

 

With Gratitude

Another busy quarter for the GVI Trust in Laos!

We have continued to provide sponsorships for Lao students to attend local English schools to increase their access to future opportunities. This week we’ve also been busy paying school fees for our sponsored students. We haven’t been able to tally up the total yet, but it’s looking to be over 50 students at primary, secondary and higher educational facilities as well as vocational education.

During this quarter we helped to provide several sponsorships for private English lessons at the Bright Centre and English for Everyone. We also paid the next year’s tuition fees to support many young Lao students, and it looks like we will have nearly equal numbers of male and female students! We are projecting to spend over 6,000 GBP on school fees and associated costs for students this year.

Overall, the GVI Trust has greatly contributed directly to UN SDG #4, Quality Education, and it’s indicator: 4.B, increasing the number of scholarships available, through its continued support of increasing access to education for Lao students; and UN SDG #5 by increasing the number of female students who have access to education through scholarships.

Dear Supporters, 

This has been quiet quarter for the GVI Trust in Laos! We have provided sponsorships to increase students’ access to future opportunities, and funded the salary of a local, female intern, helping her to increase her employability through practical experience in the classroom.

This Trust project is working directly towards UNSDG4: Quality Education, by increasing the number of trained teachers in developing countries.

The GVI Trust has also contributed in working towards UNSDG5: Gender Equality, by providing the salary of our female NSP, Miss Tarn, who has spent several months building skills in English, teaching, computer competency, translation, and more recently: presentation. These are all incredibly marketable skills, and will hopefully help her to seek gainful employment in the future.

Overall, The GVI Trust has helped to fund projects working towards increasing access and quality of education in Laos. Thank you all so much for your individual contributions towards helping us reach our goals!

We have also continued to provide classroom rental for students to gain greater access to educational opportunities, provided sponsorships to local English schools to increase students’ access to future opportunities, and funded the salary of a local, female intern, helping her to increase her employability through practical experience in the classroom.

  • 5 students for 1 year at the Bright Centre Luang Prabang (6 male, 2 female)

In addition to this, The GVI Trust has also contributed to the continuing of GVI Laos’ free classes for male and female students from rural Laos, who come to the city to gain access to higher quality education. There are 36 (54%) male students and 31 (46%) female students benefitting from these classes and working towards improving their English skills as well as marketable life skills such as computer skills, CV writing skills, and critical thinking skills.  

The GVI Trust has also contributed in working towards UNSDG5: Gender Equality, by providing the salary of our female NSP, Miss Tarn, who has spent several months building skills in English, teaching, computer competency, translation, and more.

We have provided our annual donations to the Luang Prabang Children’s Library and the Nan District Learning Centre. Last year these funds were allocated to teacher’s salaries to keep the library and learning centre staffed and to new bookshelves that provide a organised educational space for the students. This year the funding will again be used for teacher’s salaries and forbuilding and facility improvements for the students.

The GVI Trust continues to support educational opportunities through finances for classroom rental in Luang Prabang that has increased educational opportunities for 98 students.

The GVI Trust has provided funding support for costs the Laos Menstrual Health Initiative and held a fundraising challenge to ensure it’s continued support. The funding has been used for materials to sew the sustainable reusable menstrual health kits and the transport to get these kits and Lao certified menstrual health trainers to rural and remote areas to distribute them and deliver education workshops on menstrual health. To date, this program has reached 699 women and girls in Laos.

Overall, we have contributed significantly towards education and health initiatives and programs in the Lao community. We have achieved our goal of sponsoring 100 students in Laos through our Luang Prabang and Nam Thuam sponsorship programs, have supported the growth and reach of the Laos Menstrual Health Initiative and have contributed to other educational support in the community through classroom rental, uniforms, educational materials and educationally related transport.
