Volunteering abroad with Let Laos Learn is genuine
Lately we get a lot of questions from possible volunteers what distinguishes us from other organizations and why they should volunteer abroad in our projects.
We have a proven impact in our projects with over 1,300 children that already followed official eduation at one of our schools and we already taught English to over 3,000 children in different schools.
Thanks to our proven results we are also recognized by the Lao Department of Foreign Affairs, meaning volunteering is legal in our projects and not something we do for fun (although volunteering is fun).
We also have a strong team of volunteers in other countries believing in our projects. They are constantly fundraising to build more schools in Laos. It is a great collaboration of volunteers in Laos and other countries building a future together for the Lao children. We are in constant dialogue with the local people so you can be sure that we work bottom-up.
