Sanva was born in a refugee camp in Thailand. He then migrated to Bokeo, Laos, at the age of seven where he and his family were given Lao citizenships. At the age of fourteen, he was given the Lao-Kumamoto scholarship to live and study in Vientiane High School in the capital of Laos. Shortly after, he was given the ASEAN scholarship at the age of sixteen to study in Singapore.
Sanva published his first book titled: “Stateless: Diary of a Spirited Boy at Napho Camp” in July 2013. He raised about USD 45,000 from the sale of his book to construct a much-needed primary school in Bokeo, Laos. Because of this cause, he was featured on Straits Times, Radio Free Asia, Credit-Suisse One-Employee Magazine of Private Banking & Wealth Management and SMU Encore eNewsletter, and was invited to be the Guest of Honour to grace Xinmin Secondary School’s 69th Speech cum Homecoming Day in 2014.
Again, the proceeds of this book titled: “Transition: A Journey in Laos” will go towards renovating vocational training facilities for the Lao Women’s Union Center in Vientiane, Laos.
