Our Stories: Democratic Governance:

  • Community Radio in Laos

    Trustworthy technology offers new hope for Laos’ poorest communities.

  • Local governance paves way for poverty reduction

    The rainy season used to mean a loss of revenue for Timchai, a farmer in the southern Lao province of Saravene. Rainfall during this five-month period would often make the road running from her village to the nearest market impassible, causing her produce to rot before she had an opportunity to sell it. But thanks to the construction of a new road, Timchai can now access the market in any weather.

  • Revamped market creates brighter future for local vendors

    Soutsady, a 48-year-old mother of six who prefers to be addressed by her first name, has always depended on her meagre income from selling fried bananas at Khangkhai village market in the central Lao PDR province of Xiengkhouang.
