Initiated by the international NGO community the Directory now includes information about 51 organizations and a total of 160 projects in Lao PDR. The goal of the online Directory is to (a) help interested users gain quick and free access to such information; (b) assist international and local NGOs, and local government authorities in their decision-making processes through providing up-to-date information on development projects and activities in the Lao PDR; and (c) facilitate further coordination of efforts and exchange of information between NGO community members to help Lao PDR achieve sustainable development and reduce poverty. The website has a bulk of information on trainings, events and news related to NGO / Development work.
This website is all in Lao language. You can search the website for information disaggregated by subject (education, agriculture, legal issues etc.) or upload documents you wish to share with other organizations and professionals.
