Jai Lao Foundation with our Thanks

With the official opening of Ban Hat Kham Primary school, there was a huge celebration awaiting us.  I was supposed to arrive before the Governors boat but that wasn’t to be.  We had so many pick-ups along the way including supplies, furniture and guests that they beat us.  Still, they villagers patiently waited up the riverbank to provide us this special greeting.

None of this would have been possible with our main sponsor, Jai Lao Foundation.  They prepared a special sign for you that says ‘Thank You Jai Lao for Your Support’.  We wish you could have been with us for the official opening.

The Warm Greetings

They followed my all the way up the riverbank leading with the Jai Lao sign.

They proceeded to follow me right through the village too

I felt so honoured - I was expecting a reception of sorts - nothing like this.

I wish Jai Lao had been there to celebrate.  It sure is a humbling experience.

Jai Lao, on behalf of Adopt A Village in Laos and the villagers of Ban Hat Kham, thank you for giving this village hope.  www.JaiLao.org
