Laos is one of the poorest countries in Southeast Asia: more than 23% of the population still lives below the poverty line (World Bank) and rural areas have the lowest school enrolment rate in the country, especially among girls. Education, health, social services and telecommunications are particularly difficult to access.

The projects directly managed by Enfants d’Asie
