Global Service Laos Update

Global Service Laos Update

A group of 9 intrepid Scotchies (from the Class of 2017) have done incredible work in the communities that they have visited throughout their Global Service Program trip to Laos.

The group have been fantastic ambassadors for the school and have made a great contribution to the ongoing work on projects being coordinated by Rustic Pathways. They have walked with elephants, been distinguished guests at a Laos wedding, taught English at local schools, and had meetings with local elders.

At their first stop in Nong Khiaw, the group worked at the local primary school to help complete a perimeter fence. The students spent five days mixing cement and laying bricks. The local children were so enraptured with the new visitors that they pitched in and helped carry bricks and buckets of cement. On their last day with the school they spent the afternoon teaching the children and playing games.

The second stop in Nong Tok tested the resilience of the group as they settled into their second homestay and service project. This time, they worked at the Town Meeting Hall to create a perimeter wall and walkway.

The group persevered, even though temperatures dipped into the single digits. The group rallied and worked harder than ever to stay warm. On the last day in Nong Tok they changed pace and prepared 100 meals for the local school.

The Scotch students delivered the lunches and spent 90 minutes teaching English conversation fundamentals.

This has been a great start for an ongoing Global Service Program!
