The Eco-Bungalow Project

As part of the World Volunteer team, ISD students help building sustainable eco-bungalows in an ethnic-minority community with the goal of helping to grow and trade their way out of poverty. A clay eco-bungalow provides a village with a facility that will generate cash income and labour opportunities for years to come.

World Volunteers have partnered with various local guides and transportation companies based in Luang Prabang who promote the eco-lodge as part of their community-based tourism project. Through this partnership, small groups of tourists are guided to the village. After each visit, the project partners ensure that payments to the eco-lodge and the village fund are made, thereby supporting the local community.
