Project update Sept 2016

15 Jun , 2016  

In late 2015 I setup a computer teaching facility at the charity school in Luang Prabang. 280 students now get one computer lesson and 4 English lessons each week. With some assistance, I developed an ‘Introduction to Computing’ programme.

GOALS for 2016

  • up-skill local Lao teachers in Information Technology,
  • train a new Lao teacher as the IT assistant for afternoon and weekend classes,
  • develop workshops for Elementary students,
  • teach computing to villagers 1-1,
  • donate the goods collected from generous supporters in NZ to villages.


I spent must of the year collecting donated items and am taking:

  • 10 laptops
  • 1 iPhone, 2 routers, 1 webcam and other items
  • 50 x A5 conference folios with calculators
  • stationery
  • amazing prints of Wellington and NZ scenes
  • external hard drives
  • internal hard drives to replace dead drives in computers
  • 200 toothbrushes
  • 50 KG of some very cool children’s clothing for villagers

Thank you so much for such great support.

You can securely donate via credit card here or deposit into ASB Bank 12-3629-0402457-00.

Thank you (Khop Chai Der)!
