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
