Hi Pamela! Apologies for the delay in replying. No, we don't pull out! We re in for the long haul! Our long- term aim is financial self sufficiency at the local level. We continue to provide support and assistance in establishing a vendor network and supporting our vendors. We have an in-country program manager (fully remunerated) and rotate volunteer interns (primarily uni students) through our hub in Laos.
