Programs & Results
Infrastructure improvements and access to quality learning materials are at the heart of Room to Read’s work in Laos, as the lack of adequate resources and facilities continues to plague the country's most underserved areas.
Our local team began in 2005 by implementing three programs—School Construction, School Libraries and Book Publishing, and have since grown our operations there to include Girls’ Education and Reading & Writing Instruction.
In 2011, Room to Read Laos signed a new, five-year Memorandum of Understanding with the Lao government, outlining our plans to continue operations in the country and expand our programs.
Key partners of Room to Read in Laos include: Action with Lao Children (ALC), District Education Bureau and Sports, Villager Communities, Participatory Development Center (PADECT), Provincial Education Service and Shanti Volunteer Association (SVA).
