Jai Lao hopes to alleviate hardships due to poverty and lack of opportunities by working in cooperation with the villagers to help them achieve sustainability, accountability and pride of ownership of their schools.
Jai Lao Foundation (Jai Lao) is a volunteer based nonprofit charity organization founded and incorporated in April of 2009. Jai Lao is headquartered in the Bay Area of California, USA and is recognized as a State and Federal tax exempt 501 (c)(3) private operating charitable organization, tax ID number of 26-4734613. Your contributions to Jai Lao are tax-deductible to the full extent permitted by law.
Jai Lao was founded on a passionate belief and mission to serve and help people, particularly the children of Laos, with their basic human needs and rights in life. Jai Lao believes everyone deserves a future with hope and opportunities, and that education is essential to fulfilling this dream. Jai Lao endeavors in assisting the educational and fundamental needs of the people of Laos living in regions off the beaten path where adequate aid is often difficult to obtain.
Why wouldn’t we? When one has seen and felt poverty, despair, and hopelessness, one cannot simply standby and do nothing to help those going through life’s hardships. Our intentions are purely motivated and driven by our passion and dedication to serve and help others who aren’t afforded the same opportunities in life.
Jai Lao builds schools in Laos to give the village children a chance to learn and grow which will help prepare them for a better future. Jai Lao believes in the power of education as a mean of eradicating poverty and a way of having a more optimistic future. Hence, Jai Lao also has awarded scholarship grants to Lao American college students of refugee descent across the United States. Jai Lao believes all people should have access and rights to clean drinking water; therefore, Jai Lao provides personal hygiene kits, school supplies, warm blanket and clothing to people living in remote villages of Laos. In addition, Jai Lao donates clean water purification units to villages in dire need.
