Build a Classroom for At-risk Children in Thailand



The SOLD Project prevents child exploitation in Thailand through education. SOLD seeks to expand its Resource Center facilities, adding a second classroom building to reduce crowding and better serve the educational needs of the at-risk children in this rural Thai community.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Half of all children in rural Thailand are forced by poverty to drop out of school at a young age. Many of them, lacking education & resources, end up exploited in Thailand's sex industry. The SOLD Project's Freedom prevention program offers educational scholarships, tutoring, & other resources to at-risk children to keep them off the path to prostitution & give them hope for a better future. One building currently serves as tutoring center, classroom, library, staff office, & play area.

How will this project solve this problem?

SOLD's Resource Center opened in early 2010 and participation in our after-school programs, workshops, & weekend English classes grew rapidly. With 10-30 students attending daily & nearly 100 each weekend (hundreds for special events), a separate two-story classroom building will enable us to better accommodate our students & provide additional study space. The second story will provide on-site housing for staff &/or long-term volunteers.

Potential Long Term Impact

By investing in the education & development of these at-risk children, we not only prevent them from becoming victims of exploitation, but we free them to succeed, rise from poverty, & change the future for their families, their children, & beyond.
