SKL School Project #6 Opens in Ban Na Chantai
The community was very grateful to be selected for a new school and collaborated by participating in various labour-intensive stages of the construction. Because of the remote location, SKL's Lao builder, his family, and employees set up living quarters at the job site. The school was constructed in 5 months at a cost of $75,000. The village has signed a commitment to maintain the building and keep it in good repair for future generations.
An enthusiastic contingent of SKL representatives and donors travelled to the village in December to participate in the opening celebrations. Many thanks were shared and friendships renewed with people travelling from as far away as England, Canada, USA and Australia. The opening ceremony was inspiring as always and representative of the warm hospitality of the Lao people. We came away with many blessings.
