He has helped us more than any other teacher has ever done. As Lao language is not our mother tongue, he provided us with a lot of support to learn Lao language; to pronounce correctly and write correctly. We can also learn other subjects such as maths and “world around us” better as well.
Teacher attitude and student learning
Not only related to studying, he has given us advice to live in today’s society and about being good children for our parents, good grandchildren for our grandparents and not getting involved in criminal situations or drugs – also not to fight each other but to help each other to study.
We have become quite advanced students in our class because of Mr Youachung. He has inspired us to have a high commitment to study.
We intend to continue our studies, at least until we will complete upper secondary school or accomplish vocational school so we can have any job to help our lives.
An inspired classroom dreams for the future
We intend to be the new generation of teachers to teach in our own village when Mr Youachung has retired.
We would like Mr Youachung to be healthy; to take good care of his health, not to drink alcohol and not to drive home fast (on his scooter) so he can come back to teach students in our school every day until he retires.
We would like teachers to explore more creative games and innovative learning materials to help us learn better and better!”
How you can give children in poverty a quality education
There are many schools in Laos that do not have access to teachers like Mr Youachung or quality teaching resources. ChildFund is working to change that, but we need your help.
Education is one of the focus areas of our community sponsorship program. Your monthly contribution will go towards providing training for teachers in Nonghet, improving access to education for children and establishing safer schools where they can learn.
You can also donate one of our educational charity gifts, which will contribute to the schooling of children in the communities where we work.
Every child has the right to an education, and every child needs a childhood.
