CHILDREN'S DAY AT KHUN LAO: CELEBRATING A YEAR'S HARD WORK

All over Thailand, families celebrate Children’s Day with games and small gifts.  This year Project WIN volunteers organized a big Children’s Day event at Khun Lao.  They put up a stage and sound system and decorated the village  square for all-day live entertainment

They brought loads of gifts: food, toys and stuffed animals.  Project WIN believes that building community with local leaders, villagers, and volunteers will strengthen working relationships throughout the New Year.  Here are the pictures.
