The centre provides food, healthcare and education to support the children. Ranging from 7 to 19 years of age, the children also participate in practical activities such as gardening, handicrafts, sports and games at the Centre.
While openly teaching about faith is not permitted in Laos, the Sisters’ work hard to instill core tenets in the children such as respect, responsibility and being helpful.
The support received has helped the Centre continue to provide basic needs for the students such as nutritious foods, health care and educational resources.
The Pontifical Mission Societies
Founded in 1822 in France by Pauline Jaricot (1799-1852) A savvy young woman with a vision for mission, Pauline Jaricot saw a need and made something happen. She was no sister or saint, but simply one person with a vision to help, the passion to act, and the enthusiasm to involve others. From humble beginnings the first Pontifical Mission Society was started.
