SKL is pleased to confirm the start of construction of our 8th school in Laos. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, SKL will build a new five-classroom facility which means every child in the village will be able to attend their local school. Currently, students in grades 4 and 5 must travel 10 kilometres to attend school.
SKL operates under very strict criteria when it comes to selecting locations for our schools, including the requirement for the local community to participate in a meaningful way. The Kangxé villagers are eager and promise full participation in the construction process. They will supply lumber for general construction needs and furniture fabrication. This commitment reduces SKL's construction costs slightly while instilling a sense of pride and ownership in the community
The Kangxé project includes building new sanitary washrooms, installing electricity, a deep well water pump, and furnishing the school. Construction has begun and will be completed in December in time for the official inauguration.
