your help makes all the difference


Project # 9: Ban Nong Chung Primary School - Under Construction

Project # 10 will be announced soon.
With the help of donors from all over the world SKL is delighted to announce that Nong Chung School is 70% complete. With just the floors, painting, windows and doors to be finished the inauguration of the school will take place in December 2019.

Building on this success we now turn our attention to Project 10! Although we have yet to pick a project Ken will meet with two potential sites in December and a decision made soon after. With this in mind we will commence our fundraising efforts immediately. We believe this school will cost approximately between $55,000 to $65,000 CAD. SKL is delighted to report that we have raised $10,300 already towards the building of Project 10!

YOUR donation will build the tenth school giving the students of Laos the opportunity they need to succeed.

Two dollars from every Vidday purchase goes towards SKL.

The money donated from Vidday will be used to purchase essential materials that students need in order to learn and succeed. These school kits are delivered to students at one of SKL’s school building projects.

The perfect video gift idea to celebrate any special occasion.


When we were looking to make a difference in Laos, our research quickly identified the work that SKL was doing. A closer look at SKL revealed an organization that is responsible, accountable, efficient and remarkably effective. Knowing how SKL is structured and how they work to achieve the goals of improving the lives of children in Laos, we've developed unquestionable trust in SKL's team and confidence that the work we're investing in does indeed translate into a meaningful improvement in the lives of Kids in Laos.

how you can help

Imagine doing something that affects a life a world away! Helping to change the lives of children in many ways. There are lots of ways you can make a difference. You can make a difference to the life of a disadvantaged child even with a small step. Here are some ideas to help you get started.



Take action - give what you can. Every gift will make a difference to these children.

Transform a Community

Build a classroom, provide electricity, buy school supplies. Give these children what they need to build a brighter future.


Attend a Unique Event

Rally your friends, family and co-workers to support the annual fundraising dinner. Enjoy authentic Laotian cuisine and help build a school.

Hold a Fundraising Event

You've got a passion to help these children - have a garage sale, bake sale, collect spare change - then donate the proceeds to SKL.



Donate your time and energy to help give these children the best possible start to a better life! In your own local city, volunteer to raise funds for the current project.

Celebrate with Added Benefits

Celebrate your special occasion (graduation, birthday, anniversary) by requesting donations to SKL instead of gifts!
