The Power of Reading: A brighter future for Kam in Laos
Kam’s voice resonates loudly and clearly in her classroom. Once a shy child, Kam has transformed into an outgoing girl.

Her village consists of 86 households, with a high proportion of parents leaving to find a better income in neighbouring Thailand.
