Many young girls (9-16) in Laos live at remote schools in small decrepit and makeshift bamboo huts, and always in fear of being raped or abducted across the border to work in the sex trade in Thailand. With their homes being a minimum of 20kms away, it is too far to walk to school daily. The alternative is that they do not go to school at all.
We have raised funds and completed the building of 3 dorms in Muang Kai, Phou Luang and Xien Mok. These house 240 beds fully equipped with bed fit-outs as well as toilets and washing facilities for over 600 students at the school. This ensures a safe and secure place for the girls to live whilst they get an education for a better future.
