Work with members to make a difference

On Dec. 8th, 2016, our Lao Country Director, Thongsy and his group of volunteers, traveled to our first school, Ban Phaiwai Primary School (completed in 2015), to hand out writing materials, notebooks, pencil pouches, art supplies, recreational reading books, and words of encouragement for the students!  This was made possible by very special donors!  Thank you!

Stay Connected!

Education is a universal right! Which is why when you commit to donating just $9/month, your help will provide school uniforms and materials for an entire year to 5 students. 

​​We are working to ensure that every child has a chance to go to school. We are building schools, partnering with community leaders, and reaching children who have to earn instead of going to school. Find out how you can help by joining our team.
