  • Eco-Building in Laos

    Our Eco-building projects are devised to generate jobs and income which directly benefit local people. You will work alongside local people using eco-friendly methods to build small lodges which will be run by the villagers and used by tourist trekking groups. Funds raised are put into a village fund, managed by villagers themselves and our local partners to invest in the village.
