Education in Laos


 

Laos is a country with a communist regime, which makes it difficult to start any aid organisation. Little by little organisations are being allowed into the country to help, for instance, with providing health care. According to the United Nations, a third of the population lives below the povery line.

Education is minimal and in most areas is limited to primary education. There is a lack of a good standard of education as well as a shortage in educational material. In addition, there are insufficient teachers, which means that the education offered is not well structured.

On the other hand, many Laosian children and young people are extremely driven and are eager to study. If the possibility presents itself, children will go to school in the evenings or weekends for extra lessons. This is in addition to working hard to help to support their families.

The Champa Foundation supports education in Laos on three levels.
