Why we are helping and how YOU can get involved

The remote villages of Laos have never recovered from the ‘Secret’ war of the
1960’s. While rich in culture and tradition, their education, healthcare and
hygiene conditions are severely lacking. The average lifespan is only 56 years
and average age is only 20.8, caused by poor quality water, poor hygiene and
general poverty. BUT with your help we have already made a difference in the
lives of over 3500 villagers.We have built 3 schools in Pha Yong, Had Chanh, and Done Lom and we are currently building 2 more. We have also distributed over 400 water filters systems and completed hygiene training for 5 entire villages. Each family is required to take this course before a filter is provided, in order to promote a longer, healthier and happier life. A new water source including a dam, water tank and taps has been completed, with 2 more water projects on the go.  We are also adding toilets for a school and a village. It doesn’t stop there. This year we are also providing bicycles to students, where their school is too far to walk.
You can help in so many different ways. Before you do though, note that less than 10% will go to direct overhead costs, contrary to many NGO’s who’s overheads can reach 80%. Sponsors for every project will receive emailed pictures and details of how the money was spent.

Here are some examples of how you can help with your financial contribution.

– $70 buys a water
purification filter for a family of 8. It will also include your name on
the water filter and a picture forwarded to you with the family and the filter
unit.
– $13,500 US buys a two room school. Perhaps you would like to sponsor or assist us to sponsor a school complete with school furniture
 – $700 US (approx) pays for a teacher for one year
– Approximately $50 US buys education for one child for one year including school fees, 2 uniforms, shoes, backpack and school supplies.
– hygienic washroom facilities rane depending on the number of stalls and start at about $2000, but are critical to prevent more disease.
