  • 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.

𝗠𝗼𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿 𝗧𝗼𝗻𝗴𝘂𝗲 𝗕𝗮𝘀𝗲𝗱-𝗠𝘂𝗹𝘁𝗶𝗟𝗶𝗻𝗴𝘂𝗮𝗹 𝗘𝗱𝘂𝗰𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 (𝗠𝗧𝗕-𝗠𝗟𝗘)
𝗦𝗲𝗽𝘁𝗲𝗺𝗯𝗲𝗿 𝟮𝟬𝟭𝟳 | 𝟭𝟬 𝗬𝗲𝗮𝗿𝘀 𝗼𝗳 𝗣𝗖𝗙 🎈📅⏰

Since 2017 PCF has supported the Mother Tongue Based-MultiLingual Education programme in four schools in northern Thailand. So far approximately 2.500 children from underserved ethnic groups have benefited from this project.

The salaries of 19 local teachers are provided to ensure the running of the programme and a better opportunity for these children's further education.

𝗧𝗵𝗿𝗼𝘄𝗯𝗮𝗰𝗸 𝘁𝗼 𝟮𝟬𝟭𝟳:

Most ethnic children only speak their local language, but the schools teach in Thai. This creates a language gap which puts the children at a disadvantage.

Our new partner, the Foundation for Applied Linguistics (FAL), offers a programme that includes both the native language and Thai, so that the children are not only prepared for further education, but also their ethnic language and culture are respected and preserved .

We are thrilled about this new project because it offers over 450 students opportunities they never had before.

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.
