  • For Ban Pha Lai village community this resulted in all of the children failing their school year so Kru Oil, a former teacher at the community school and project co-ordinator, set up evening classes on her own but quickly found herself swamped by the number of students joining. 19.000 THB (500 Eur) paid for the stipend for 3 teachers for 3,5 months to teach 3 grades of 48 children EVERY NIGHT for 2 hours. Not letting this generation fall futher behind is a huge impact for very little money.

"Cultural diversity is an asset that is indispensable for poverty reduction and the achievement of sustainable development."

Baan Huay Hin Lad Nok is a rural, ethnic 'Karen' village in Chiang Rai province, northern Thailand.

Like for most rural communities, the nearest school is quite far and so the village established their own Community School. This local school enables the students to gain the skills and knowledge needed to advance in their education while preserving the unique cultural traditions of their Karen people.

The boys dormitory at the Ban Nai Soi Community Learning Centre (BNSCLC) is not just a place to sleep for the 13 students and 1 caretaker/teacher. It plays an important role in the "living and learning centre" ethos of the school, encouraging students to respect each other's rights, to be responsible for themselves and others, and to be able to get the most out of living at BNSCLC.

Unfortunately, that doesn't amount to much when the roof is so full of termites and rain damage that it is likely to collapse in the next big storm. Time for a new roof, and as soon as possible, before the rainy season starts!

Special thanks to Daniel Senicar and Michael Franklin from Bike Tour Asia for initiating this project, for their contributions and for their great efforts to see it realised!

Many thanks also to Trond and Sawee Arnstad, Jan Detlefsen, Miguel Gamito, Jonno Hiscook and Khun Angkana Pun-Ong for their contributions..

It's never easy to sum up a life in a few sentences and is that much harder with Martin who packed a lot into his 67 years - travel addict, guitar player, biker, cognitive neuroscientist, food wine and whiskey connoisseur. And, with his wife Ann, long-term supporter of PCF.

Today would have been Martin's 67th birthday. It is a great loss that he is no longer with us, but we will celebrate his life and cherish the wonderful memories we have of him forever.

He will be missed.

Supporting girls’ education through scholarships

What would you do if your parents asked you to drop out of school to help earn money to support your family? This is the choice faced by so many... and it is why we believe it is so important to help provide scholarships to students who would otherwise have to make this choice.
