There are a lot of movements to improve education quality in SE Asia, but overall, Laos lacks sufficient number of qualified teachers and student enrollment is low.

The growing tourist market is in need of English speaking locals and the failure to provide this need to the market is a huge obstacle in the search for better job opportunities for the Lao people.
As a teacher, you will join us in teaching 120 children each day in our project house.

Meetings between local villagers and international volunteers can bridge the gap between different cultures for both parties and our methods are based on critical thinking instead of just repetition.
