We first worked on a village development project in Laos in 2007. Tha Pene village wanted to build a water system, by sensing the water source and building a 12m3 basin in the Mekong river stone to store the water!! 

 

Working with communities of Laos is very effective. People are so dedicated. There are many small communities, of less then 50 families. The local administration asked villagers to group themselves within the communities: 3 headmen, women and youth association. All these create a good spirit making it easier to build and realize the project.

 

Lao people participate greatly in the realization, being able to gather money or material found in their region: wood, gravel, earth. They often contribute with a labor force, gathering the population to work on community projects.
