Ock Pop Tok Empowers Lao Teen Girls


Women’s empowerment is a core value of Ock Pop Tok, and this year, the “Queens of Crafts” chose to partner with Lao Solidarity and their Lao Teen Girls Project.

The Lao Teen Girls Project strives to teach young women in rural areas how to manage menstruation at school, at home, or while working in the fields.

The Laos Solidarity outreach programme has a team of peer educators who go out to rural villages during the school year and the dry season. They deliver supplies and conduct workshops to educate the teachers and girls.
