We are Project Kajsiab Laos.
We are Daauw Kajsiab Team.
We promote mutual and respectful understanding between travelers and local people in Laos on culture and customs by encouraging dialogue, sharing daily life together and working together on projects to improve the lives and health of local women and their children and families.
We are dedicated to empower the mountain people of Laos.
We seek to improve the lives of the Lao people in Bokeo Province in Northern Laos through partnerships and exchange activities between the local people and volunteers . If you are interested in volunteering, you can read more about it on the volunteering page or apply using this form
Zjong and Nzoua from the Lao mountains and Lara from the Netherlands launched Project Kajsiab Laos 10 years ago. Since 2010 the project is supported by Kajsiab Foundation in the Netherlands. Nzoua and Lara are not the owners of the Project; the mountain people are.
Zjong and Lara and the other core team members do not receive a salary from the Project
It has been a rough and challenging ride, a completely new way of building up a project.
We can proudly say, looking back at the past 10 years that the project, completely owned, managed and run by the Lao mountain people is a success story.
The local mountain people know the project through word of mouth up to the other side of Laos and into Vietnam. Women and children come to the Shelter from many different villages and once they go back to their village each one of them can tell the world their own success story of healing and transforming , learning and eventually building up a happy and healthy self sustainable life with their children.
We will also work on new projects in the villages and need a 4WD to be able to reach out to the ethnic communities and share information and help with communication and access to healthcare and education.
We can use your help!
We need funds to be able to achieve self-sustainability and any ideas, support, donations and other forms of help are very welcome! You can donate through www.daauwvillagelaos.com or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org for any other ways of help. Thank you so much for your ongoing encouraging interest and support
