Discover the Power of Love in Action!

In the Nhommalath district, where families face numerous challenges, World Vision Staff are dedicating their lives to educating children. Despite their circumstances, staff are tirelessly finding creative ways to engage their students and shape a brighter future for them. Watch this video of Laos in action!

Breaking the Cycle: Livelihood Projects That Transform Communities

World Vision's livelihood projects in Laos are transforming communities from within. By partnering with local members, we address specific needs and provide sustainable resources to families. Ensuring food sustainability not only nourishes families but also allows children to attend school, breaking the cycle of having to work to support their households.

Education Extends Beyond School Walls

In Laos, education extends beyond the classroom. Community activities bring families together to learn essential skills like agriculture techniques, hygiene practices, and livestock care, fostering a sense of unity and empowerment.

A large crowd of community members gather to learn about agricultural practices.

Manh's Dream for Tomorrow

Meet Manh, a 16-year-old student brimming with enthusiasm. Since a young age, he has cherished going to school and expanding his knowledge. Now in Grade 5 of secondary school, Manh actively participates in the staff-run activities, and he's eager to share his experience:

"Hello, my name is Manh, 16 years old.

I am currently studying in grade 5 at a secondary school in Nhommalath District, Khammouane Province, Lao PDR.

I'm incredibly grateful for the project workers who come and organize activities that benefit my family and our community.

The project staff have impressed me with their brilliance, courage, and remarkable ability to connect with everyone. Their sense of humor brightens up our days and strengthens our bond with them.

Participating in these activities brings me joy and a sense of fulfillment."
