MUANG XON
The Rural school is an example of the many challenges in Laos due to its remote location and mountainous terrain. Our team took 2 days on the road driving some of the most challenging roads in Laos to reach the school.
Our travels were rewarded by being able to see the happiness, excitement, and interest of the teachers and students who were very eager to learn about proper waste management and recycling.
The project is an excellent example of how Homebiogas can overcome the challenge of logistics and can be cost-effectively deployed in the most remote areas,
