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.

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.

A small case in point is the closure of schools here in Thailand forcing 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?

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, set up evening classes on her own but quickly found herself swamped by the number of students joining.

19.000 THB (500 Euro) 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 further behind, ensuring that they have equal opportunities, is a huge impact for very little money.

(Psst it is your donations to our General Fund that help us cover these small but essential projects).
