We are up against an unprecedented challenge: a global crisis unlike any we’ve experienced in our lifetime. One of the main actions we can all take to defeat COVID-19 is to wash our hands. As part of our quest to provide educational opportunities for children in Laos, a key part of every project A Child’s Notebook takes on is to provide sanitary conditions at each location. This crisis reinforces how important it is to have a washroom at each school so children can learn in not only a safe environment but a hygienic one. This crisis also reinforces the importance of education, our organization’s mission. Even having the basics of reading and writing can help individuals and communities manage difficult times like this in a safer and healthier way.
A Child's Notebook works with communities who are deeply committed to their children's education. We partner with village leaders to plan and build schools that best address their needs.
