Enhancing The Community in Thailand

Why we need your help

Supporting Community Development in Phang Nga

Summary

We work with local organisations, offering them support with volunteer time, but the need for financial assistance is great. With little or no governmental or community funding, our partners seek outside sources for funding. Their needs vary as do the priorities for each need. Initially, we will focus on assisting with school and personal health supplies, repairs and improvements to infrastructure.

Challenge

Two of our five partners stayed open after the initial relief work ended after the devastating Tsunami of 2004. Our other partners are independent schools who rebuilt after the tsunami. Each of our partners depend on volunteers, donations, and/or government funding. With limited funding and a growing population, there is regularly a lack of classroom resources. These financial hardships are discouraging to both the staff & students and affect their ability to teach and learn.

Solution

By providing a new source of funding we will be able to help our partners in a multitude of new ways. Currently, we have limited budgets for resources that we use in our classes and for small items our partners may need. With funding, we will be able to help and support our partners more, both in and outside the classroom. We will have a lot more flexibility to provide better support when it is needed.

Long-Term Impact

Long-term, we would like to provide materials and resources and implement programs that will be self-sustaining with each partner. As children move from grade to grade, they will be able to use the same resources. Examples of such resources include projectors, computers, sunscreen dispensers, desks and an established garden.
