This summer I am heading to Laos for a 3 week service project. I will be designing and facilitating teacher training sessions that will support the country's education goals. My team and I will be working with staff from the British Embassy, the Laos Ministry of Education, and various local teacher colleges. 

Below are the objectives of the project: 
"Working alongside the Ministry for Education and the British Embassy you will be part of designing and facilitating a long-term training program starting in 2018 that will support the country’s education system as they move towards their 2030 vision. We will work with two teacher training colleges and their surrounding schools to plan training that supports the government’s goals including a focus on 21st-century learning and English proficiency."

In order to have this once in a lifetime experience, make a global impact, and further my own practice and leadership skills I am asking for donations to cover my program fee and airfare. My program fee covers all in-country transportation, housing, and food. 

Costs Breakdown:
Program Fee - 1748.25 (housing, food, in-country transportation)
Excusions - $533.25
Flight - $1400
Total: 3,681.50
