Setting up Booths for Blanket Donations

Generous Donors
Generous Donors

The Foundation was determined to collect as much donations as possible, so as to distribute planned blankets for those who were about to face the cold season in the north. So when the opportunity came for her to set up booth in the Central World (the former World Trade Centre in Bangkok), she seized the moment.

On 21 November, which was the onset of the "winter season" in Thailand, it was forecast to be a dry and cool day, and the booth stand was set up by 4pm out in the open area, to catch the after-work crowd, during the pre-Christmas period.

Donation boxes, photographs and displays were put up to catch the attention of the passing crowd, and volunteers also came after work to help out. What was unexpected was the sudden downpour that drenched all the exhibits, but not the spirits of the staff and volunteers, who continued to attract the attention of passers-by.

By the end of the night, at about 9pm, a total of 5 blankets were collected! But we believed that more will come in by Christmas time.

Thanks you for your support, as we are encouraged each time  we see an increase in the giving by the generous hearts like yours.

Training Hill Tribe Leaders in wholistic approach

The training sessions
The training sessions

The population of Thailand is made up of various people groups and a portion of them are scattered amongst the hilly regions. These hill tribe groups generally live off the land and common amenities like water and electricity reach them last.

In terms of education, schools in the hilly regions are limited in number and upper secondary education are even less so. Therefore, the hill tribe students have to travel to the towns for their higher level education. Due to the vast distance from their homes to school, these students have to stay at the boarding schools and they only get to visit their homes during longer school holidays.

The Foundation thus trained 27 dormitory-persons-in-charge, as well as youths from about 12 tribal groups from the local school in Chiangrai on the 19th June, so that they would be able to run wholistic activities (that develop them physically, intellectually, spiritually and socially) for the tribal residents in the boarding homes during the weekends. In the process of running these activities both the leaders and participants get a chance to develop their leadership skills, as well as creative use of their free-time.

ENABLING Core Youth Leaders to help give back to Society

We are all Ready to sail the seas!
We are all Ready to sail the seas!

Young people, no matter their status or backgrounds are energetic, vibrant and looking for avenues for meaning and purpose. Understanding their needs, the Foundation for Life runs projects that would support in engaging youths, helping them discover hidden talents and giving meaning to their existence.

On 29 to 30 April, the core group of 40 Youth Leaders from communities in Bangkok and the neighboring provinces gathered for an additional training. These Youth Leaders who have been trained at various levels in previous camps are sponsored by the Foundation for Life to this training, and they were gathered to help plan for the National Drill Competition event in November 2010, for about 400 boys and girls from all over Thailand. They also attended Workshops on “Life-skills in Relationships and Healthy Attitudes toward the opposite sex".

Besides that, these young leaders were given the opportunity of learning new skills by the Staffs of the Nong Bon Water Sports Center, Bangkok. They now have a wider choice in the use of their free time to better their new-found skills in kayaking, sailing and wind-surfing.

These young people were unanimous in their approval of the training, as can be heard from comments like.... "I will be responsible to prepare for the portion of the Competition program that was delegated to me", Pinyo promised "The water sport activities were so new and challenging for me!" said Milk, "I want to do this again!" said Pure and "I now understand how the opposite sex thinks," said Tew,

We know that these Youths now have better self-esteem and understanding - which is vital foundation for helping others.
