Dear Supporters,



Laos is a beautiful country that in the past has attracted many tourists. This has potential for local people to gain valuable experiences and skills to set up their own business or seek employment into the tourist industry. However english and education is vital for this to happen and the local government does not invest into the education system with allocating only 3.3% of the country budget devoted to education.



Because of your support through this very special project our dedicated team have been able to ensure we have been able to provide access to english lessons and further skilled education to local community members that eventually will graduate with skills that can help them gain employment. 



Over the past three months COVID has hit everyone and although restrictions have been put in place we have continued to provide the support and education online and locally following strict protocol. As we prepare for the schools to reopen we have lots of plans to help steep up our lessons and student learning but what comes with this is a need of further funding.

 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for being part of this project. It is time for action and change and we are equipped and ready to react in Laos with you by our side.

 

With Gratitude,

This quarter was a bit slower for the Scholarship fund, as most students were already enrolled in school in the last quarter. However, we were able to use some of the funds to help support 2 female students studying in China.  These students were awarded a partial scholarship, but unfortunately the funds did not cover all of their living expenses. So, the GVI Trust has been helping to support these young women achieve their educational goals, by helping them get access to basic needs support, while studying in China. In this way the GVI Trust was able to contribute directly to UNSDG#4, Quality Education indicator: increased number of scholarships and sponsorships, and UNSDG#5, Gender Equality, by increasing access to educational opportunities for two young women in Laos. (On a side note, the girls, like many Lao students are currently back in Laos and being kept in the country to wait until it is safe to return to China. Many students are being given the opportunity to study online while they are not able to attend classes).  

 

The GVI Trust provided over $200 in basic needs support for two Lao female students to study in China. 

 

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. 

 

A big thank you to our donors, fundraisers and supporters!

 

With Gratitude,

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!
