Why Laos needs your help
Despite recent economic development, over a quarter of the population of Laos lives in poverty and nearly three quarters of its people suffer daily hardship.
Half of under fives are malnourished and many rural villages do not have safe drinking water, health care or adequate schooling. Most rural families still make their living from subsistence farming and fishing.
LEOT started its work nearly ten years ago providing scholarships for students from these families. We continue to help students that are sixteen and over as there is simply no other NGO helping them.
