"Most Lao citizens are unaware that associations exist at all, much less what role they can or do play," explains Gretchen Kunze, Asia Foundation Country Representative. "Not only are CSOs new to Laos, this landmark resource highlights the challenges of accessing this type of information here," she adds, noting that the number of Internet users for the country is estimated at about only 10% of the population.

"Until now, women who found themselves in violent situations had to return home at night," said Gretchen Kunze of the Asia Foundation. "This is a huge step forward for Laos," she said, contacted in Vientiane ahead of a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the shelter to be attended by Laotian officials. UNICEF and the Japanese Embassy in Laos were among the donors that helped fund the shelter. The foundation plans to build a vocational training center on the compound to teach job skills, including basic business management and sewing that will enable the women to support themselves, the statement said. The creation of the center follows legislation passed in October 2004, called the Development and Protection of Women Act, which offers greater protections to victims of domestic abuse and trafficking, the foundation said. Prior to the shelter's opening, the only center available to female victims of abuse in Laos was a daytime drop-in center where women could seek temporary protection, said Kunze.
