  • During Phase 3 of the Covid-19 pandemic, migrant workers in three districts (Fang, Mae Ai, and Chai Prakan) were unable to provide enough food for their families.

  • The project's core objectives included promoting the well-being of teachers by ensuring they received the necessary care and encouragement and providing essential school materials for effective teaching. The initiative aimed to address the nutritional requirements of both students and teachers by helping provide food. This comprehensive approach was aimed at creating the best learning environment possible in the extremely challenging conditions.

  • 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.

"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 almost 543 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.

Thanks to Christine Peter, Anthony Mann, Robin, and Maaike, along with the generous support from Stichting Ochtendstond, LEGO Employees' Anniversary Grant, Brodtbeck Philanthropy Foundation, and our valued sponsor, BNNVARA. Your contribution has significantly enhanced the lives of these students.

The ongoing conflicts in Myanmar have severely impacted 115 students and teachers, forcing them to flee their villages. We have provided these individuals from Thoo Mwe Community High School, Kaw La Hey School, and Waw Kyaw School with three meals a day, ensuring they have a safe place to stay. This support has been crucial in allowing the children to continue their education despite the challenging circumstances.

We extend our gratitude to Joanne Nihom and Michiel Schrijver and two anonymous sponsors for granting us significant funds to support this project.

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.
