$15,000 more to go- let's build a school in Laos!

Melissa Kong 's fundraiser for Pencils of Promise


100% of your donation goes directly towards building a school in Phik Nyai, Laos.

It devastates me that over 75 million children in our world live without a pre-school education . And 250 million primary school aged children leave school early to work and support their families.

Did You Know?

A child is 40% more likely to live past the age of five if its mother has had a basic education

At least 700,000 new cases of HIV could be prevented each year in all the children in the world had a classroom to study in

A single year of primary school increases the wages people earn later in life by 5-15% for boys, and even more for girls

This mission to raise $20,000 to build a school in Laos is about empowering children abroad , using education and the power of knowledge to support them in leading happy, healthy lives.

But, it’s also about you. It’s about your full potential to create positive change in this world. You may think that what you have to contribute is small, but it isn’t. With the same amount of money you spend on a nice meal, pair of shoes, or a night out, you can literally change someone’s life.

Make the difference- be the change you wish to see in this world!

Much Love,

Melissa Kong
