Six years ago, a small group of King's High School students embarked on a journey in pursuit of sustainably empowering young people in rural Laos. This journey has sent groups of King's students to visit Laotian communities to learn from and work with. Students realize how similar they are to the Laotian youth, as much of the trip is spent with Laotian teenagers. However, one of the most significant obstacles for youth in Laos is vulnerability to human trafficking, as so many often end up enslaved due to a lack of other opportunities.
This is where you come in. With your support, young people in Laos can realize that there are other options for them - options where they can thrive rather than just survive.
On December 6, in partnership with World Concern, King's High School students present RESTORE - a benefit dinner for young people in Laos. This location was chosen because of the work done by the Non-Profit Organization associated with King's: World Concern. An internship position was created to help fund-raise World Concern's efforts, which works against human trafficking by providing alternative and sustainable career options. It has become a tradition for interns to organize a fund-raising banquet as a main event. This year's is called RESTORE.
