Laos Population Disaster Prevention Policy Three Phases Cost: 5.6 Million 10 teams of 10 trained volunteers coordinate and assemble in Laos, along with the equipment and transportation required to complete phase 2.

Encourage aid organizations to build schools in the urban areas (a project now made more effective by the increased urban population) With more schools moving in form aid organizations we hope to increase the literacy rate and hopefully coax the government into implementing a sex-education program and raising the minimum dropout age from 10 to 15. They will stay their for only 12 days, performing one teaching session every day.
