WE DID IT! £1005!!!! Thank you so much to everyone who has donated and helped me to raise my goal of $1000!
Now I just need to get the books!
The money I want to raise is to help some of the most dedicated and enthusiastic children learn English to improve their chances for the future. Many of these children ride their bikes for an hour in all weather to come every day after their school day is finished. I am so dedicated to raising this money I am willing to jump out of an plane to do it!
Specifically we want enough for a projector for teaching IT skills and a set of good books for the children to learn from. $1000 AUD will enable us to buy the project and enough books to provide good English classes (1 or 2 copies of outdated, miscellaneous books for a class of 12 or more doesn't really work... and there are 6 classes!)
Please help to improve the way we teach and the resources available for these children!
Sae Lao is a sustainable development project in Laos. The project consists of a small organic farm, a farm-to-table restaurant, a community center that provides daily English classes, and a volunteer project for international visitors.
The mission of the Sae Lao project is to provide a holistic model for sustainable development in order to manage natural resources and people in an efficient, effective, and equitable manner. Not only does Sae Lao employ and teach local people, the volunteers that stay at the project are encouraged to interact with the community and to share their own experience and skills.
We have hit 50%! Thank you so much to everyone who has donated so far! You are all incredible people and each and every one of you have my gratitude forever and will really be making a difference to some amazing people.
Please keep it going. With over 200 page views if everyone who viewed the page also donate just 5 dollars (£2.50) we would exceed our target and have extra funds to make the education at Sae Lao exceptional!
