(KPL) The Children’s Home Foundation (CHHF) was launched in Vientiane last Friday, July 26 to promote child education and culture.
“The foundation has been established with an aim to promote education and cultural development of Lao children. It is supported by the non-profit organisation Future of Children Japan-Laos,” said Ms Souphaphone Visapra Kawamura, President of the Children’s Home Foundation.
“CHHF’s activities will be under its three objectives – 1. contribute to educational and cultural development of Lao children and youth, 2. improve the knowledge and skills of staff and 3. extend help to disadvantaged people,” added Ms Souphaphone.
The CHHF has sustainable plans. One of them is to establish a model kindergarten that will serve not only as a place to teach young children but also a place to teach and exchange knowledge on teaching and taking care of young children for parents and teachers from other schools.
Five children from disadvantaged families were also awarded scholarship from the foundation on the day.
