Helping the Laotian students on their way
Two students from the orphanage in Luang Prabang, Laos, will continue their education thanks to the generosity of the local people who attended a fundraiser at Palmer Sea Reef Golf Clubhouse.
Tongsai from a remote Village 10 hours from Luang Prabang will start his final year studying English at the Teacher Training College this September.
Seemon from the remote Gowmaney Village will continue studying Electrical at the Technical College.
Both these boys are orphans and each spent over nine years at the Government Orphanage School.
As a result of this fundraiser, we are now able to offer sponsorship to another student who will graduate from the orphanage school in August. The sum of $US670 covers tuition, full board and all personal expenses for each student for a year.
Thanks must go to our wonderful supporters, to Quicksilver for their generous raffle prize to the Outer Reef, and to Palmer Sea Reef Golf Club for their raffle prize and the superb high tea provided.
Very special thanks to all my friends who entertained and assisted in making such a successful and enjoyable morning.
There was lots of fun at the orphanage fundraiser at the Palmer Sea Reef
