  • 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. First, we seek out community-driven initiatives started by local people to benefit their communities and improve their quality of life. Second, we connect these projects with sponsors willing to fund these activities.

On the eve of the 𝗜𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗻𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝗮𝗹 𝗗𝗮𝘆 𝗼𝗳 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗪𝗼𝗿𝗹𝗱'𝘀 𝗜𝗻𝗱𝗶𝗴𝗲𝗻𝗼𝘂𝘀 𝗣𝗲𝗼𝗽𝗹𝗲𝘀 we would like to ask you to join us in celebrating some of the exceptional and committed women in the Mother Tongue Based Multilingual Education Programme that we support.

Our multilingual programme teachers or as we call them “local teachers” are crucial to the Multilingual Education Programme because it would be impossible to teach the students without them. The reason is that local teachers speak the children's mother tongue and help them develop their Thai language skills so they can progress in Thai schools. This project supports the education of underserved children from ethnic groups in Thailand. The goal is to preserve, respect and develop the local language and culture and to develop speaking, reading and writing skills in Thai. This will give them much better chances to pursue further education and, ultimately, get better jobs.

𝗔𝗡𝗗 𝗢𝗡𝗘 𝗠𝗢𝗡𝗧𝗛 𝗟𝗔𝗧𝗘𝗥...

Last month we received the great news that the U.S. Department of State: Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration Affairs has awarded us a 24.277 USD grant to help the most vulnerable Karen internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the border area of northern Thailand.

And now the first payment of 16.993 USD from the Julia Taft grant has arrived and the help can begin immediately!

The funds will provide essential nutritional supplements and the most basic medicines to the most vulnerable IDPs escaping armed conflict. These include newborn babies and breastfeeding mothers, babies and toddlers up to five years old, those over 70, people with physical disabilities and mental health issues, widows and the wounded; in all approx. 1.530 people.

We could not have done this without the assistance and encouragement of Sarinya Moolma (Fon) and David Muehlke of the Office of Refugee & Migration Affairs at the U.S. Embassy Bangkok

Thank you!

Because we believe that all children should have a place to learn, feel safe, and be understood, PCF partners with Friends Without Borders Foundation (FWB) in supporting nine marginalised ethnic Karen community schools in remote and conflict-affected areas in Burma.

“Strengthening Capacity of Border Karen Schools and Teachers” (SchoolPower Project) is the name of the project. A powerful name for an empowering project.

The project supports 73 teachers through workshops and other activities during the year to improve their knowledge and ability to provide a quality education and ensure the well-being of the children.

This project also provides, among many other things, school materials, equipment and books for reading corners and first aid kits and medicine for 663 children and is indirectly beneficial to 350+ households. To make the communities self-sufficient, income-generating activities are developed and implemented.

The SchoolPower project works closely with teachers, women, children and youths to improve the quality of life and education. We believe that every child has the right to go to school. We work to achieve that, even in this difficult situation.

A huge thank you to The Ban Adri Foundation – Stichting Welzijn Zuid-Oost Azië (SWZOA), the Brodtbeck Philanthropy Foundation and Bob & Fran's ACT Project - Abolish Child Trafficking for granting us significant funds to support this project.

Also a big Thank you to all of you for contributing to Sallo's Birthday Fundraiser. You provided 30 percent of the budget!

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.
