Overview
More
Cultural Exchange & Volunteering, Women's Workplace, Shelter for Care and Informal Education, Woman Empowerment shop, Restaurant & Homestay run by the Mountain people.Kajsiab is a local Lao-Hmong community initiative, located northern Laos, Bokeo Province aiming to empower the local economy and improve the well being of the Lao mountain people in a meaningful way. Be aware that this place is not a fairytale, it is a tough place where people are learning to become self sustainable and overcome their past trauma. Children get personal care and education in the local way, which is not a travellers way. Open your mind and realize that you will see a screenshot of some people who have a whole lifetime of moments to learn and heal. What you see here is not only a result of our work, it is most of all the process during our work.Your being here helps the people to be proud of their work and helps the project to become fully self sustainable and independent of rules and funding abroad.

Project Kajsiab is a small grassroots project and you can feel the familiar atmosphere the moment you enter the place. The people in charge, Zjong and Boonchan, make you feel very at home. If you go to Huay Xai it's worth paying a little visit....More

The Homestay and Restaurant generate much-needed funds for this small grassroots structure, which helps Hmong village women to overcome their problems and provides a shelter for them and their children either on a long-term basis or short-term. Wonderful work.
