Community Learning International is deeply committed to reducing the consequences of poverty in Laos. Our aim is to provide development aid by offering village based projects that positively impact education, water and income generation, while preserving and respecting the rich culture and traditions of the Lao people.
Believing education is key to ending poverty, CLI has been providing education based aid projects in Laos since 1997.
From running library boats and learning centers to school construction, all our projects are designed to support one another.
Bordering Thailand, Laos is also known as 'The Land of a Million Elephants', and is one of the poorest countries in the world.
Learning Centers are a proven and effective way of realising a child's potential in an engaging and rewarding environment.
A beautiful 60-page book of photos and captions showing aspects of the lives of Lao teens has just been printed and will go on sale shortly. The book was part of a CLI project, Young Cultural Ambassadors, designed to bridge the gap between tourists and locals in Nong Kiaw.
Providing opportunity for a child is easier than you think. Community Learning International turns your dollars into opportunities for children and communities in Laos.

Although Laos escaped the direct path of Super Typhoon Utor, it is clear the heavy flooding and land slides are a direct result of the increased rains, and unfortunately resulted in many deaths, which as expected are mostly children.
