Summary

Furthering educational opportunities for young financially disadvantaged Lao students through sponsorship of English classes, Scholarships for Secondary, Tertiary or Vocational Education and educational and medical support for Novices and Monks. The goal of the Project is to disperse the funding across these several targeted groups of financially disadvantaged students. GVI aims to equitably support both girls and boys.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Commonly, the most economically and educationally disadvantaged sector in Laos society are rural families. Opportunities for higher education and English learning are limited. Consequently many students opt to come to Luang Prabang where there are greater opportunities for studying and obtaining employment. This project aims to reach groups of students who without sponsorship or scholarship, would not be able to access further education in an attempt to enhance their opportunities in life.

How will this project solve this problem?

The project will identify through community consultation, Lao boys, girls, young men and women who are at risk of not being able to receive either a secondary, tertiary or vocational education and provide sponsorship for English classes and scholarships for secondary and post-secondary education. GVI also wishes to support the educational and medical needs of the Novices and Monks with whom we work.

Potential Long Term Impact

Furthering a range of educational opportunities for financially disadvantaged but highly motivated students through this project, increases the capacity for these individuals to productively contribute to the economic development of themselves, their families and ultimately their country so that Laos is increasingly better able to effectively conduct itself on the world stage.
