This year we are supporting the travel costs of 5 deaf students from Muang Sing to study at the deaf school in Luang Prabang. Four students are returning to school for their third year. The youngest boy is a new student going for his first year. We sent 3 parents to accompany the students. One father speaks Lao and is the group leader, one father is there to take care of the girls. The father of the new student is going to look at the school and decide if his son will study there.

Follow up: The father of the new student was very pleased with the new school and left his son there to study. His son was happy to stay there. The three parents returned to Muang Sing without incident.
