Education

Education is more than learning to read and to write. It is the basis for a better life. Education enables children to become independent thinking, enterprising citizens. And that is vital for the necessary changes in Laos. The Friends of the Khong district Foundation is committed to quality education.

EDUCATION: (potential) building of school Don Xai Phai 2019

Don Xai Phai is a village with over 600 inhabitants on the banks of the Mekong. Most people earn their income with rice cultivation and fishing. However, the average income is very low and the people can hardly manage. 

The wooden school in the village is currently in a very poor shape. The walls of the school are bended and here and there planks are missing. Furthermore, the sink roof is rusting and full of holes, giving little protection against the sun and rain.
A big storm last year also caused a great deal of damage.

EDUCATION: building school Ban Nasenphan 2018-2019

In 2014 the KCDA has built with our support a building with two classrooms in the village of Ban Nasenphan. Beside the two-classroom building, they have a kind of wooden shed that’s in a very bad shape. In these two buildings about 100 pupils get educated. 

The village head and the director of the school have asked KCDA for financial support to replace the wooden shed for a building with three classrooms.  

EDUCATION: (potential) building school Ban Houay Phai 2018-2019

The current wooden school in the village of Ban Houay Phai is built in 1976 and is actually on the verge of collapse. It is expected that the school will last for only 1 to 2 years.

In the two buildings about 260 pupils from three villages get educated.

Education: building a school in Ban Muang 2017-2018

The old school in Ban Muang is in serious need of replacement. In the roof, but also in the wooden walls, there are large holes so that in particular in the rainy season teaching is very unpleasant. Some children do not even show up in the rainy season because it is not really possible to sit in the classroom with your notebook and pencil. Also in the hot season the indoor climate of the school is very bad. No ceiling, no fans, so terribly hot. You can imagine that the children, but also the teacher, can not concentrate properly.

Textbooks

Without textbooks no education is possible. One, mostly outdated book for five students is no exception. The government has ordered new books to be printed, adapted to ev
