Here is a look at some of the projects realized with the solidarity funds gathered at each of our trips, especially the one of the French Tourism Associations for Solidarity, Vision du Monde (www.visiondumonde.org) and La Route Des Sens (www.laroutedessens.org).

 

Tha Pene village, in the north of Laos, was the first community that requested funding for its development. In April 2007, they needed a water system. They dragged pipes from a spring in the mountain and pure natural water was flowing to the village, into a newly built basin. Toilets were improved for the school and 7 fountains installed in the village. That was almost 10 years ago and it now benefits more than a hundred families.

 

Since then, the word spread and many other communities requested funding.

 

These projects answers only villages or local associations needs. To benefit from the fund, all communities need to write a detailed request, presenting the project, its target and its precise budget. They must participate in the project, gathering money (sometimes up to 45% of the project value), offering their labor force through communal works, or providing materials that can be found locally (wood, bamboo walls…).

 

Thanks to all the travelers who came to enjoy these countries with us and with the French Tourism Associations for Solidarity, Vision du Monde (www.visiondumonde.org) and La Route Des Sens (www.laroutedessens.org).
