  • Description

    Description

    We built an Eco Resort on a rice field.In February 2017, we opened it for international guests, since then, we have had the honour to meet some very nice people. We have been helped with expertise in a variety of ways from volunteer work in a community teaching project. We would like to invite people from all walks of life to help us to make a little difference with Laotian students learning English from rural backgrounds. All nationalities are welcome to join !

    Laos is rich in culture, diversity and natural charm. Lao people are very friendly and are always willing to help. Laos food is very interesting and there are many delicious dishes to try. Staying and being part of a local community is a good way to experience Lao hospitality.

The students are mostly aged from 11yrs to 20yrs old depending on which project you will be participating in.They come from poor backgrounds and don't have much opportunity to study English. Our mission is to give access to these type of language learners, build bridges with the community and create opportunities for both our volunteers and for the students.
