Laos has a population of 6.5 million, and is one of the poorest country in the world.

FFM made its recce trip to Laos in Feb 2013, where we met our local coordinator, Peter Tan, who has worked/lived in Laos for 18 years. We visited several areas and noticed the poor conditions of the schools that need urgent help.

Following the visit, Firefly Mission built the first school in middle of the year and completed in November 2013. The second school started in November 2013 and completed in February 2014. The third school started in May 2014 and completed in October 2014.

The Laos government recognizes the importance of education but, being a poor country, lack the financial resources to provide proper schools.

Firefly Mission appeals to our volunteers to support our efforts in providing safe and conducive schools for the children of Laos.
