Laos is our biggest project country. We have focused on Vocational education and training on Sawing, cooking, beauty treatment, wood working and hospitality.
We have helped women and youth to take vocational education course. We support tuition fee and accommodation costs. Almost all of them are farmers and cannot choose another jobs. Because some are no skill other than farming. Others don’t graduated from High school. However after taking vocational school, such as sawing ,cooking and beauty treatments, they can get skills and look for new job.
After taking vocational course, some of them would like to have their own shop. For example, beauty shop, small boutique, small restaurant. We support their business. we lend money to buy some equipments like sawing machine.
3. Wood Working Project
We have supported wood working education with Japan Cooperation International Agency (JICA). First phase, from 2014 to 2017, we supported the wood woking non-formal education course. We made the curriculum of wood working course and help youth to study wood working. Second phase, from 2018 to 2020, we help wood working teacher at vocational education school.
We first started hospitality training in Laos at 2019. There are a lot of tourists in Laos and some of them are elderly and would like to live in Laos. However no education course which studies elderly care in Lao. After graduating, the students will get job at hotel or at service apartment to support elderly people.
