In Ban Vieng Hine (a small village of northern Laos), there is a school for 224 students, 107 girls and 117 boys. It only only provides kindergarten and elementary classes. Middle and high schools are in a village nearby about 9 km away. Children go there from the age of 3. A total of 9 subjects are taught, two of which are mathematics and art. This program is the same in all other schools in the country.
Thanks to donations and external help, the scholl has now no shortage of supplies and equipment (books, pencils, tables ...). However, kindergarten is too small and there is no computer room or library. These infrastructures are essential for children's learning. They could become familiar with digital tools, develop their culture and go to work in big cities more easily, if they wish. Students study hard to succeed, but they must also help their parents at home by doing various housework. After high school, the children of the village are often forced to go to big cities, if they have the means, to continue their education. After university, few people want to come back to the village to work there.
