Summary

2 hour evening classes 5 days a week for 48 village children who were failing in school when classes went online due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Background

The closure of schools here in Thailand due to the COVID-19 pandemic force 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?

Ban Pha Lai is a community we started supporting several years ago, first with a community school now handed over to the Thai Education Authorities to run, then with emergency food support for the most vulnerable during the COVID-19 pandemic, and now with this small community run educational help.

Goals and Results

To mitigate the effects of school closures on the children of a whole community.

Ban Pha Lai is a village in Chiang Dao District with a population of approximately 750 people from Akha, Lisu and Karen ethnic groups living in 150 households.

We've been supporting their preschool and when COVID hit, the school was closed, and the villagers could not go to work. They asked us to help their most vulnerable.

Intermittently for 18 months, we provided essential food supplies to villagers who were in need, such as people who are quarantined, elderly and sick people. In the most difficult time when the village was in full lockdown, we supported 50 families, around 250 people.

We supplemented their diet - relieving their meagre budgets and helping them to get the basic needs to survive.

Thanks to Help Helpen in Thailand and NTCC - Netherlands-Thai Chamber of Commerce for this support.

We help them, they help others - with your support villagers rally to help those in quarantine.

10 people in a remote village in Northern Thailand had to go into quarantine due to COVID-19 restrictions. Not a problem you may think, but when you have no income, and may even be on your own, how do you survive?

Using the funds from our General Donation Pool we supported with basic foodstuffs such as rice, eggs and cooking oil for the initial number of 10 people for one month. That number grew to 13 but the villagers clubbed together to find food for the additional 3 and collected vegetables to add to the basic food supplies for all.

We donated foodstuff for a month to ensure there was enough to cover the 2 weeks after leaving quarantine to look for work.

𝗔𝗻𝗱 π˜π—΅π—² π—°π—Όπ˜€π˜? 10.770 THB [288 Euro] or about 0,80 Euro per person per day.
