  • 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.

Htoi Bu is one of 26 volunteer teachers serving in a remote part of Burma (Myanmar) where many people have been displaced due to conflict.

These people cannot afford to staff their humble schools, and so PCF supports the modest living expenses of these volunteer teachers in two villages and five camps for Internally Displaced Persons.

This enables Htoi Bu and the other teachers to provide essential education to more than 1.000 children. But equally important, to support and care for those coping with the traumas caused by conflict.

Thanks to the continued support of long term sponsor the Jars of Clay Foundation and the other sponsors; Christine Peter, Willem Grosheide, Paul Overdijk, Rob Cubbon, Robin de Witt and Maaike Tamis, children in remote and restricted areas of Myanmar are able to get an education that otherwise would not be accessible for them.

Karenni Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) fleeing armed conflict inside Myanmar, now face water shortages in one of the camps.

The camp is located on a high hill and even though it’s the rainy season the groundwater that is available is not safe to drink. And without enough containers to catch the rainwater, the only option is that groundwater.

It may be a temporary measure, but water purification tablets make a huge difference. And thanks to our sponsors, about 740 packs have been sent to help 28 families (about 150 people) and children in the student dormitory. Even sending them was difficult, requiring a trek through the jungle on foot.

Thank you, Nancy and Roger Lindley for your continuing support!

PS. the faces are blurred for the safety of beneficiaries.

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.
