To date, 31 wells and storage tanks have been built in remote villages in Laos. These wells now provide access to drinking water to more than 35,000 people.
The arrival of water in these regions has made it possible to considerably improve the living conditions and hygiene of the inhabitants. Our field surveys have enabled us to compile statistics and the results are very encouraging.

|Decrease in diarrhea||75%|

|Decrease in mortality by disease||82 %|
|Decrease in student absenteeism rate||64 %|
|Increase in cultures||19 %|
In 2011, a school was built in the village of Ban Sao. This school provides schooling for 120 students, some of whom come from nearby villages.
Thanks to the support of the Laotian Government, which has provided two additional teachers, Ban Sao now has four teachers for its 120 students. Mathematics, history, geography, lao, english, physical education, crafts, music and general culture are some of the subjects that are taught to Ban Sao students.
Help to an orphanage
Hin Boun District
The district has an orphanage in Moung Thakhek. This includes 317 children deprived of their parents either by war or by diseases caused by extreme precariousness (see the humanitarian situation in Laos). During its first field visit, the Association engaged with the orphanage to provide material assistance. School supplies were distributed to the children (notebooks and pens).
Today, the orphanage benefits from the support of foreign organizations and therefore no longer requires specific assistance from TdS.
