Butterfly Children LAOS

Butterfly Children LAOS

The art of gesture found in the distant Asian village.

The Butterfly Children's Centre is located in a small village on the border between Laos and China. The inhabitants of this region are representative of dozens of ethnic groups, each of which uses a separate language. Children go to school to the point where their self-reliance and individual scientific competencies are considered sufficient. Their parents do not know Laotian, so they are not able to help with their homework, and often they do not understand the important role of education. Their whole life is based on work in the fields, because only through this can they feed their families. A show of traditional dance and a trip to Poland allows the children to explore a world which overflows the pages of their short textbooks. Douangpanya Oula, who is the leader of the group in Laos, says that when she went with the children to the main city of the province to make ready all the necessary passports and visas, she bought a map of the world, and the kids wanted to see where they were going, and where the other participants of Brave Kids come from. While admiring the continents of the world, the answer to the carer’s question "How many countries are there on Earth?" they replied hesitantly - between 15 and 30. We are pleased that at Brave Kids, the children will be able to meet people from at least some of them.
