Visit to the Room to Read office in Laos

We were humbled by Room to Read's country director for Laos, Somphet Phongphachanh, and the work she's doing for her country. One can't doubt her passion; she became emotional as she discussed lessons her parents had taught her about the value of education -- how it ultimately meant she could achieve so much despite starting off as poor as she did. And now her life's work is to see those same opportunities extended to all of Laos' children.
