On Monday 14 March, Tea Gardens / Hawks Nest Yoga had a Yoga class at the Surf Club where money was raised and set to go to a very good cause.
About twenty keen yogis attended the Yoga Class on the day, at Hawks Nest Surf Club, where teacher Jackie George donated all the money from the class.
It’s not too late to still donate teacher, Jenny Winney told News Of The Area.
“With $478 so far raised, the money will be used to buy books for poor children in remote parts of Laos,” she said.
Funds will benefit Luang Prabang Library (Book Tuk Tuk), an initiative to assist the children of Laos to read.
This money will be personally delivered by Jenny and Jack Winney who will be taking a trip to Laos in April and May of this year.
Laos is a rural community with many people engaged in subsistence farming, so people are poor and books are an unaffordable luxury. Some schools have no books, even if there is a school.
CLI operates the Lao Children’s Library boats, the only two in Laos, which brings books to children and others in 75 Mekong and Ou River villages, as well as giving book bags of 100 books to more villages.
“You can help by just giving $2 (the equivalent to 20 000 kip), which will buy a Lao book for the book bag,” said Ms Winney.
“$250 buys a whole book bag and you can join in with a one-day visit.”
