We call our organization “Transformation.”  That word comes from the process that transforms a caterpillar into a butterfly. Our official Lao government approved name is Transformation Center, Lao PDR. Thus, is our website or just call us TCL for short. TCL is incorporated as a non-profit in the United States under the laws of Florida as Transformation International Corporation.

In Laos TCL’s governmental authorization is from the Lao National Commission for Drug Control and Supervision (LCDC) to be a recovery and vocational training center in the prefecture of Vientiane. TCL is also a member of Global Teen Challenge with a board, constitution and bylaws.

Our goal is to serve the people of Laos, especially the poor and marginalized and empower them to thrive. We do this through the four foundation stones of our program: 

  1. Rehabilitation

  2. Community Development

  3. Education 

  4. Business Generation




Each person has priceless worth.


As we have received mercy, we desire to express compassion to others.


Family is the foundation of society, so our passion is to support and develop healthy individuals, their families, and their communities.


Laos is a special nation with much to contribute to the world. We want to work towards releasing its tremendous potential.
