Teams working in Laos have the opportunity to embed themselves in rural Lao communities and undertake genuine infrastructure improvement work. Projects in the past have included the construction of a primary school classroom, preparatory work to connect electricity to a secondary school, as well as teaching English.
In 2015 we sent
to 5 project sites in Laos, where they undertook school renovations and built a water tank large enough to supply a whole village with water throughout the dry season.
In the 14th century, Laos was part of the kingdom of Lan Xang. The kingdom also included large parts of present-day Thailand and Cambodia.
