  • 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.

Our Projects

Projects are the foundation of Philanthropy Connections. We take a two-step approach to our project involvement.

Happy Thai Fathers' Day to all the amazing fathers who work so hard to provide for their families. We appreciate you!

This is Sai Vijit. Once a student at the Koung Jor Shan Refugee Camp, he was given scholarship support from PCF to further his education. After completing his degree, he returned to the camp to share what he had learned with the next generation. He's a true father figure to his students and we thank Sai Vijit for his dedication to his community and his students!

𝗟𝗜𝗙𝗘 𝗦𝗔𝗩𝗜𝗡𝗚 𝗣𝗥𝗢𝗝𝗘𝗖𝗧: 𝗠𝗘𝗗𝗜𝗖𝗜𝗡𝗘 𝗙𝗢𝗥 𝗜𝗡𝗧𝗘𝗥𝗡𝗔𝗟𝗟𝗬 𝗗𝗜𝗦𝗣𝗟𝗔𝗖𝗘𝗗 𝗣𝗘𝗥𝗦𝗢𝗡𝗦

As a result of the current political situation in Myanmar, many thousands of people are fleeing their homes, with some finding shelter in temporary Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camps.

One of these camps holds about 3.000 IDPs, of which 187 are children of school age. We already support a school there, but recently the number of people has increased as the camp has become known as a safer place.

Due to this increase, poor hygienic conditions, the rainy season and the lack of a health centre and medicines, the people in the camp are facing health problems. Five camp residents have already died from treatable diseases, one of which was one of our students.

EUR 1.430 was requested by our local partner for the most urgent of basic medicines and these were quickly paid for and delivered.

Many thanks to Jonny Berman for his funding of this life saving project.

𝗙𝗥𝗢𝗠 𝗦𝗧𝗨𝗗𝗘𝗡𝗧𝗦 𝗧𝗢 𝗦𝗧𝗨𝗗𝗘𝗡𝗧𝗦 🏫🪑🗺

During two years of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Hsa Too Lei School at the border in Mae Sot had closed down. This school has 1.100 students - children of Burmese migrant workers, children fleeing conflict zones, children from refugee camps and orphans – and has no access to public funds.

This year they reopened but almost all their school furniture was damaged or broken. One of our long term partners, Friends Without Borders Foundation asked us for help, and luckily another one of our partners, the School of Global Studies, Thammasat University stepped in and donated 20 tables and 40 chairs.
Then, after Sallo’s presentation about our work at the Varee Chiangmai International School (VCIS), its students decided to organise a Flea Market and raised 3.302 THB for 3 educational globes for the school.

We are very grateful for SGS and the students of VCIS for their kindness in helping these 1.100 underserved students.

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.
