pa xoan 2 elemenary SCHOOL

muong cha – dien bien – VIETNAM


Pa Xoan 2 Elementary School is located in Dien Bien province, near the border of Laos. Due to its challenging geographical location, the focus in this region is on agricultural. However, due to the harsh climate and prolonging winters, the economy is very challenging. The village heavily relies on state budget resources. The level of education among the population is low and with over 80% of the population living in poverty, the need for a new school has become an urgent cry for change.

LSF is humbled for the opportunity to rebuild this school. This project aims to breathe new life into the existing infrastructure, which currently houses a preschool accommodating 20 eager students and an elementary school catering to 40 students, totaling 60 students. Unfortunately, the wooden structures of both schools have succumbed to the passage of time, necessitating urgent action. The villagers have decided to merge the two schools; thus, LSF will construct a new building with three classrooms that will benefit every child in this community.

The new school is expected to complete by the end of December 2023.

Lotus School Foundation is thrilled to celebrate the Grand Opening of Pa Xoan 2 Elementary School. After an arduous 11-hour drive to the city of Dien Bien, our team embarked on another hour-long boat ride through the mountains to reach our school. Our hearts swelled with joy as we caught sight of the eager children and villagers eagerly anticipating our arrival. Their warm welcome filled us with a profound sense of happiness and fulfillment. The newly constructed school features four classrooms, restrooms, complete with new classroom furniture, all within a total budget of $16,485.

LSF expresses deep gratitude to all the supporters and donors whose contributions have made it possible to build this school. Your generosity serves a beacon of hope for these children, illuminating a path to a brighter future.
