Laos Association of the Blind (LAB)

Project Shine a Light

Sep 2015 – June 2016

The first project was implemented jointly with Team Kampong Endeavo from Youth Corps Singapore, National Youth Council. The project kick-started a blind futsal program for the visually impaired (VI) students at Home of Light (Vientiane, Laos). The project brought forward a healthier lifestyle for the VI students. For the first time they feel joy as they can learn and participate in a sports activity. The compound of the blind school was levelled in order for the playing of blind futsal. The second project was implemented jointly with Team Ballaos from Youth Corps Singapore, National Youth Council. More futsal drills were introduced and the VI students were able to play better and scored more goals. A portable goalpost made from PVC pipes were also constructed for the school.
