ChildFund Laos

Mission Statement

ChildFund Laos works in partnership with children and their communities to create lasting and meaningful change by supporting long-term community development and promoting children’s rights

Programme Description

ChildFund Laos is the representative office of ChildFund Australia – an independent and non-religious international development organisation that works to reduce poverty for children in the developing world.

 

ChildFund Australia is a member of the ChildFund Alliance – a global network of 11 organisations which assists more than 9 million children and families in over 50 countries. ChildFund Australia is a registered charity, a member of the Australian Council for International Development, and fully accredited by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, which manages the Australian Government’s overseas aid program.

 

ChildFund began working in Laos in 2010, and works in partnership with children, their communities and local institutions to create lasting change, respond to humanitarian emergencies and promote children’s rights. Projects are implemented in Xieng Khouang and Huaphanh Provinces, some of the country’s poorest regions with significantly high-unexploded ordnance contamination, as well as the Vientiane Municipality.

 

With a focus on improving access to quality education and upholding child rights, ChildFund Laos aims to improve access to education, water, sanitation and hygiene, mother and child heath, food security and nutrition, while providing opportunities for children and youth to participate in local decision-making.
