Japan supports primary education for ethnic minority children in Oudomxay
The Government of Japan has decided to provide grant assistance worth approximately USD 470,000 for primary education for ethnic minority children in Oudomxay. The grant will fund activities for “Basic Education for Ethnic Minority Children in Oudomxay Province” for twelve months.
The project aims to provide primary education to enhance the basic academic skills and to improve the educational environment for ethnic students in Pakbeng District, Oudomxay Province.
This area is situated in a heavily mountainous area along the Mekong River with a high poverty rate. Around 90% of the population in Oudomxay are from ethnic groups who don’t speak Lao as a first language.
