Gender inequality remains a massive issue - particularly in education. Intrepid Travel wants to help change things.
So we started SAMA. A 3-year global gender equality project which aims to help bridge the gender gap through education. To help us achieve this, we are working with Plan International.
Three years ago, preschools did not exist in Laos. Many children - particularly those from minority backgrounds - continue to be extremely disadvantaged when it comes to education, especially education conducted in their own dialect. Our aim, in partnership with Plan, is to establish parenting and community learning groups in up to 45 villages, develop locally-made play and learning materials and train preschool teachers.
The first step is to raise $60,000 by 30 June 2012. Join Intrepid by donating to SAMA and help to create a bright future for girls and boys. (Please note only funds raised through Ammado is shown here. Funds are also being submitted directly to Intrepid and Plan).
Amount raised is approximate as exchange rates vary.
