An estimate of 9.7 million people was expected to be living below the poverty line in Thailand by 2020. Despite increasing student attendance numbers, the standard of education in Thailand is suffering. So keen to learn, Thai classrooms overflow with up to 55 students to a class. UNESCO found in its 2017-18 Global Education Monitoring Report, access to a basic standard of education is limited in Thailand.
With your help, we can build schools that focus on the standard of education for children in poverty, implement teacher training programs within Government schools and improve conditions children are learning and living in.
The children and communities we serve are always special and often have incredible stories of survival. The children we educate and support come from generations of poverty and will be the first in their families to break the cycle. We can all learn from their stories.
For 6 years, through trial and error, using cross-curricular implementation, we have taught impoverished children at an international level and maintained their learning standards. Children that spoke no English, came to school hungry, tired and went home to leaking shacks and challenging circumstances.
