Ban Thachampa School

Completed December 2008

3-classroom school - fully furnished, school supplies, student uniforms, sporting supplies
Total cost: $30,000 CDN

SKL's first school building project was Ban Thachampa primary school which is situated in Saythani district, 46km northeast of Vientiane. Ban Thachampa, the least developed of all 104 villages in the Saythani district, is a farming community consisting of 90 families who live off their harvests and livestock. In 2007, its existing school was in very poor condition. SKL built a new fully, furnished school with a much improved learning environment for the children.

Revisited in 2010, 2011: Needed minor cosmetic repairs.
2017 Update: School population of 65 students (Gr.1 - 3); village population perceived to be growing; school is structurally in good shape.

Thachampa school was officially opened on December 24, 2008.
