Job Opportunities in Laos
Since 2004, World Vision has been implementing multi-sector development programs called Area Development Programs (ADPs). These ADPs are district level partnerships with the Government of Laos, targeting villages in districts where children are suffering from the impacts of poverty.
In FY17 World Vision Laos has around 170 staff and operates ADPs in 17 districts spread over five provinces. These programs target 10-15 of the poorest villages per district depending on the program focus agreed with the government.
These ADPs are funded through World Vision offices in other countries including Australia, Korea, Hong Kong, Japan, Canada and Taiwan. Examples of ADP activities include support the improvement of education program through teacher training and improvement of education facilities; support the local farmers with improved farming and animal raising technique; behavior change programs focus in sanitation and access to clean water; ensure children and mother have access health services and well nourished. All programs are designed to ensure the improvement of child well being in the target areas.
World Vision also has other important programs focused on specific threats or hazards to the well being of Lao children, such as combating trafficking of children, disaster and emergency preparedness and relief.
The focus of all World Vision programs is improving child well being carried out through participatory partnerships with children, caregivers, communities, government, donor, and other organizations.
