“Just off the bank of the gorgeous Nam Ou river lies the most beautiful village of Sop Chem…The whole community welcomed us with open arms and loving hearts. Throughout the entire two weeks of working hard on the construction site and the classroom, I made the most beautiful connections with the most inspiring people. Experiencing the most genuine view of their culture, traditions, religion and cuisine. ”

GIVE’s Laos Volunteer Program takes you well off the beaten path in Southeast Asia to explore remote villages, meandering rivers, mountaintop vistas, scenic waterfalls, elaborate temples, dense jungles and vaulted caves.
