The above video was shared on Facebook by Sombath’s niece, along with the following message:
This film is worth watching. He [Grandpa Yiaheu Chiatua] will make you smile with joy.
Uncle Sombath Somphone is the director of the film, to promote local knowlege of Laos.
First implemented as PADETC’s project many years ago, in cooperation with MoE [Ministry of Education], now it’s government policy that local knowledge content is included in 20% of national core curriculum of Laos.
Uncle Sombath has done so much for his own country. May his good work bring him back home safely as soon as possible.
