Educate Young Learners

Visit Big Brother Mouse, an organization devoted to Lao children. Here, you can purchase books and distribute them to the local children, many of whom have nothing to read. Started by an American expat and staffed by high school and college-aged Lao students, Big Brother Mouse is a humanitarian organization of the greatest merit. Ad­ditionally, every day from 09:00-11:00 and again from 17:00-19:00, second­ary and high school students come to the shop to practice their English with guests. If you are interested in speaking with Laotians and learning about their lives and culture, we encourage you to attend one of these informal chat sessions.
