Additional Info:EEFA is a program started by the Organic Farm in Laos. The Organic Farm started to organize English classes in 2003. The result is amazing but we want to make it more equal for all the teenagers. Meaning that we created Equal Education For All so we can organize our projects on a better way and give everybody the same English education.

This is one of the few projects that an IV team member actually visited: Tim & Nina spent 2 weeks there in 2006 and enjoyed it. It's save and lovely, also Vang Vieng is a freaky-drug-tourist place, but as the farm is just outside, that shouldn't bother you too much. Bring enough time to organize yourself and don't expect too much guidance. A lot of really lovely nature is just around the place, caves, rivers, rainforest... you can hire a bicycle and freak out. Heartly recommended.

Totally agree about certain plcaes grabbing your imagination. I love France and Italy too, and would happily live there for a few months or more esp. if I spoke more than a few words of either lang
