In Laos, girls from rural areas often have to leave school before the age of 15, with few career prospects. Four girls are now learning sewing and life-skills at The Little House, a project run by Laos Solidarity through Luang Prabang Library Outreach Programme.
Just before Christmas, they were delighted to present John Williams at Luang Prabang View Hotel with 15 hand-sewn bags.
These bags, one of the many initiatives to reduce the use of plastic bags in Luang Prabang, were made with fabric woven by a local Lao woman. John kindly presented the girls with more woven fabric to help them on their way to self-sufficiency.
