2018-2019 Laos – Southern Hempishere

Southeast Asia

We had two amazing teams volunteering in Laos from the southern hemisphere in 2018-2019, working on various conservation and construction projects.

A special thank you to Sophie, Nick, Megan and Noah who have been a fantastic team to lead our volunteer projects in the 2018 – 2019 season.

Here are some of the highlights.

Elephant Conservation Centre in Sayaboury

  • Completed over 2km of fence line to prepare for the second socialisation area for the elephants and assisted with the landscaping and plantation of new vegetation.
  • Completed prep work such two new observation areas.
  • Helped to maintain and remodel the main ECC building including refurbishment one of the hospital rooms and the bathrooms.

Sayaboury Village School

  • Removed rotting wood and mould from the existing classroom ceilings and built a new rooftop.
  • Helped teach Year 3, 4 and 5 students English and ran daily exercise classes. The Macarena continued to make an appearance this season.
  • Setup two initiatives for recycling and dental hygiene.
