Price Details
Volunteering abroad is associated with costs and it is not the intention that the community you are going to help is paying for this. If there were enough budgets to bear these costs, we would spend this on local employees who understand the local culture and it’s daily customs. You pay these costs directly on site to the people who organizing your stay. So you are 100% sure that your contribution ends up where it belongs and not in the hands an intermediate station.

Unfortunately volunteer recruitment comes with a costs such as marketing. The alliance fee serves to bear the costs of the alliance’s platform. We ask every participant a one-time alliance fee.

About Program

While there are significant efforts to improve the quality of education in Laos, serious problems persist, including an insufficient number of qualified (and motivated) teachers, deficient school infrastructure and low student enrollment. These problems are visible in Vang Vieng, a small community where the growing tourist market is demanding skills such as English speaking ability. The failure to communicate with foreign travelers is the most significant obstacle for locals in search of decent jobs in the tourism sector.

The education project connects resource-poor schools and our own training center in Vang Vieng with volunteers so that the students can obtain valuable English language skills. Additionally, volunteers bring new ideas and perspectives that promote cross-cultural understanding.

The educational project connects poor resourced schools and our training center with volunteers, so that students can acquire valuable English language skills.
