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.
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.
