This UXO/ landmine survivor and World Education volunteer in Laos practices preparing a syringe at an animal training workshop. These workshops have become focal points in the communities where the majority of residents work in farming or animal raising.

These primary school students in Laos are reading a picture book detailing the dangers of unexploded bombs. Thousands of unexploded bombs from the Vietnam War still exist in the area, and it is thought that almost half of those injured by these bombs are children.

Children roll a detonated bomb in Laos.

Between 1973 and 2007, at least 13,000 people were maimed or killed by landmines or unexploded ordinance (UXO) in Laos. We’re on the ground providing livelihoods for victims, and in schools teaching kids how to stay safe.

Puppet Show Prep

Now that’s one colorful puppet! Students in Laos put on puppet shows to teach one another about the dangers of unexploded ordinances (UXOs).  The puppet shows are just one component of World Education’s work in Laos to aid UXO survivors and educate those at risk for UXO exposure.
