What People are Saying
"The Seattle community has always had legendary leadership for the distinctive way that it incorporates culture, art, education and a sense of community service and professionalism in their daily lives. It was inspiring to see that in action as they generously opened their doors to community members from across the United States for the Lao American Writers Summit. The Pom Foundation/Kinnaly successfully partnered with the Lao Community Service Center, Highline College, and ANNAPISI, setting a magnificent example of collaboration we might all learn from."
Bryan Thao Worra
Co-Founder of Lao American Writers Summit and award winning writer/poet.
"The [cultural exchange program] is not merely a demonstration of these students’ skill; it is the result of a profound process of learning about their family ancestry, culture, language and belief. She also thanked the Lao government, particularly the Ministry of Information, Culture and Tourism, for its support in allowing the students from the foundation to undertake their cultural exchange."
Karen B. Stewart
United States Ambassador to Laos 2010-2013
"It is also overwhelming to see the students have concentrated on the studying in order to save and expand the Lao culture values and tradition from generation to generation."
