Laos Solidarity is the English web page for “Eau Laos Solidarité”, a non-profit registered in 2010 at the Prefecture of Indre et Loire, France, under “association W372010460”. This allows French taxpayers to receive tax reductions on donations.
We work in Laos through the Community Outreach Programme of the Luang Prabang Library and all projects are in partnership, and with their guidelines. Our actions in Laos take place during the dry season, between October and March. As we work with schools, this fits in with the school terms. The heavy rains starting in May or June, mean that access to many of our projects is just not possible.
Our board consists of a president, treasurer, and secretary. We have members in France and other countries, as well as permanent and occasional donors, who contribute financially to our projects. Other finances come from fundraising in France and Laos, international donations via Facebook or our webpage, international awards and regional French government grants. Our projects are entirely funded through these resources. Projects and finances are approved by members each year at our Annual General Meeting.
