Our immediate and urgent goals
Our goal to raise an initial $100,000 in 2014 is to do 2 things:
-Pilot a new programme to support Lao women bringing up children on their own, as one of the most vulnerable people in the community. Funds will enable employment and training of 2 Lao women case workers for an initial 12 months to work directly with women in need and a pool of small grants to be made available as a practical and concrete start to the programme.
– We will set up social enterprises that provide opportunities for employment and also on-going funding sustainability for Women in Laos projects. Development of the first social enterprise, bringing Lao textile fashion into the future for the modern Lao woman, is under way. As the founding member, Debbie Petlueng’s eventual aim is to be able to work full-time on Women in Lao to insure we have the resources to grow and develop.
