Education accessible for all.

Create employment and build capacities for the local community.

Promote environmental awareness and sustainable living.

One of the main goals of SAE LAO is to promote equal education for all with English classes for children and adults plus several other educational programmes for the local community, completely free of charge and run by the volunteers.


2016 saw more than 300 students register for the free  English classes.

Currently we have eleven full time local staff who work with volunteers to make projects happen.

40% of staff are female.


Some of our projects include involving the local community in producing and selling natural and local products to boost their income and build capacities.

We aim to raise awareness of sustainability and environmental issues and work with local people on issues of sustainability.


Our approach includes responsible use of natural resources, organic farming practices and environmentally friendly building techniques.
