In Laos: female promotion

In Vientiane, the capital city of Laos, the cutting out “Centre Nazareth”, celebrates its first anniversary! It welcomes the 2 nd group of young women hailing from the faraway villages who don’t sit for their A level examinations. Most of them arrive from Thailand where they risked becoming victims of human trafficking,of prostitution and undeclared work.
This group is made up of 17 persons who follow an intensive 6 months’ programme with some internships in different designers’ houses. Then, after 4 months’ production, at the end of their itinerary, they obtain the diploma that permits them to go ahead with their life and to work with dignity.
The sisters of Charity run this centre since 2017, with the help of two associations : « De la Loire in Mekong » and « Children of Mekong »; they accompany these young women and offer them an orientation
in searching for work. In turn, some of the first group young graduates have become teachers who help the new comers of the Centre.
