We build schools
Canguro is proud to donate to Pencils of Promise to build schools in Laos.
Our impact in numbers:
Our first school opened in September 2022.
The old structure of the Houay Loa Primary School consisted of two classrooms comprised of concrete flooring, wooden walls, and tin roofing.
The doors and walls were broken and the roof was leaking. Due to limited space, the school only held classes for grade one to grade four by having two grades sharing one classroom.
After grade four, the students had to walk to the nearest school for their fifth-grade classes, which was four kilometres away.
Those conditions hindered learning, posing a hazard to student safety and engagement.
Thanks to Pencils of Promise and the Canguro community, the Houay Loa community now has a new three-classroom structure, toilets, and hygiene facilities, which will provide a high-quality learning environment where every child can reach their unique potential.
