SKL Vegas Charity Lottery Winners - Congratulations!

Thank You Supporters!

 

SKL Inc. would like to thank our numerous supporters in Calgary, Alberta, Regina, Saskatchewan, Kitchener and London, Ontario, and of course our own Winnipeg, Manitoba for their selfless help dispensing the Vegas Charity Lottery for Kids in Laos. Without their support, our drive to distribute the tickets we would not have had as much success.

We would also like to express our gratitude to our friends and families for their donation of the numerous Laotian snacks for our film projection night. The food was delicious and a delight, and very much enjoyed and appreciated by last night's movie goers.

Last but not least, we would like to acknowledge Thavisouk Phrasavath and Ellen Kuras from PANDINLAO FILM, The POV, and The CINEMA GUILD for graciously allowing SKL screening The Betrayal, the much acclaimed Academy Award Nominee documentary. The screening was a success and very emotionally touching. It's a must see documentary!

Thank you all for coming out to support us.

 

Thank You Supporters!

New Project #3: Kava Primary School

 

Ban Kava

Since our original Ban Ngiew project is taken over by Japanese International for Cooperation Agency last fall, we are happy to announce our new Project 3: Kava Primary school. It is located in central part of Laos, in Kava village, Hinboun district, Khammouane province. In accordance with our selection criteria, the village has an existing school structure along with teachers and teaching resources provided by the state, and this school is in dire condition (See our video clip). As it provides for a relatively large number of students from villages in the neighbourhood, it also shows potential for future growth.

There are 86 students from grade one to grade 5 currently attending Kava Primary School. Furthermore, many more are expected to enroll in the next school year as the new school is built with room for growth. Providing a better learning environment to so many children represents a truly rewarding achievement. However, reaching our goal will require great efforts from everyone. Your support and generosity gives us the assurance that this adventure will end successful.
