We spent today volunteering at 'Big Sister Mouse', it was amazing to spend quality time with these well behaved, kind and smart children and young people. Such an inspiration. If you are travelling to Luang Prabang, I can not recommend this highly enough ❤️

Like speed dating only much more entertaining.

We spent the day at the Big Sister Mouse School and witnessed first hand the dedication all the staff and founders have put into improving the standard of education in Laos. We had interesting conversations and taught some englisch lessons to very young pupils.

Any hostel or guest house in the historic old quarter of Luang Prabang is nearby to Big Brother Mouse, no more than a 15-minute walk and in many cases less. The Big Brother Mouse program is located near the end of the peninsula, near Wat Sene. City Backpackers is perhaps the closest? There is a hostel near Utopia Bar that is close -- Y Not Laos Hostel. Tony Central Hostel. Just look at a map of hostels in the area and pick something that is on the peninsula (which if small and easy to walk, with minimal traffic). LPQ Backpackers is a little further but still definitely easy walking distance.
Note that you can also often get a guesthouse private room in Laos as low as $10-12 as well, just towards the end of the historic district or a little outside of it.
