How We Help


Since we believe that education is of primary importance for the development of local communities and a better understanding of environmental protection, Kingfisher Ecolodge support the primary school of Khiet Ngong village (more than 120 children).

We support the school and students' needs as well as the teachers' needs (Teachers in Laos are under paid and with little or no equipment support by the government so we believe they deserve some kind of help in order to achieve better teaching results).

In order to guarantee that all donations will reach the intended target we have agreed with the village chief as well as the school authorities that, as soon as we have available a sum to donate, we will request them a list of what is needed, we than purchase the materials and hand them over directly to the school.

We also welcome all kind of donations from our guests, we will take care that everything will reach the right destination.
