Baraka Community Partnerships has been supporting projects in Laos for over 11 years. In that time we have built classrooms, school dormitories, school and community toilets and village water systems averaging over two major construction projects a year. In addition we fund two successful Learning Centres and two Book Boats that reach thousands of school children every year.
To date we have built:
9 School Dormitories housing over 500 children
174 New Toilet blocks
9 New Water systems

In Laos we work with two local organisations in tried and trusted partnerships that have a sole aim of improving the lives and educational opportunities for rural and provincial communities.
Our main partner is Community Learning International (CLI) with whom we develop school infrastructure and who operate the Book Boats and Learning Centres that we fund.
Our secondary partner, Volun-Tour Laos (VTL), work with us on community programmes that focus on village water, sanitation blocks and school improvements.
