A small case in point is the closure of schools here in Thailand forcing students online. When you already struggle to pay the small amounts needed to cover your kid's education, what are your chances of affording smartphones, laptops and a good internet connection? And for students, if your parents never completed formal education, how are they to help you?

For Ban Pha Lai village community this resulted in all of the children failing their school year so Kru Kannika Oil, a former teacher at the community school, set up evening classes on her own but quickly found herself swamped by the number of students joining.

19.000 THB (500 Euro) 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 further behind, ensuring that they an equal opportunity, is a huge impact for very little money.

(Psst it is your donations to our General Fund that help us cover these small but essential projects).

"IF ONLY WE HAD THIS PROJECT WHEN WE WERE STUDENTS"

The multilingual programme teachers or “local teachers” are crucial to the Multilingual Education Programme - they speak the children's mother tongue and help them develop their Thai language skills so they can progress in Thai schools.

Currently, we support 19 local teachers in 4 schools teaching 591 children from underserved ethnic groups in northern Thailand. They are working hard to preserve, respect and develop the local language and culture; and to develop the children's speaking, reading and writing skills in Thai.

We were heartened to hear the value the local teachers attach to this programme, a programme we're delighted to have been supporting since 2017.

𝗛𝗮𝗽𝗽𝘆 𝗜𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗻𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝗮𝗹 𝗗𝗮𝘆 𝗼𝗳 𝗘𝗱𝘂𝗰𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻!

Our Annual Reports have always been a bit more than a dry accounting list of figures, with personal stories from sponsors, supporters and beneficiaries. And in the last 10 years they have changed quite a lot, mainly due to the redesign by some great volunteers (thank you!).

Here is the look back on how things have changed.

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.
