A quick update and a new need

Blueprint: 2nd Classroom Building, Front View
Blueprint: 2nd Classroom Building, Front View

Hi everyone!

All of us here at The SOLD Project are so grateful to those of you who have already opened your hearts (and wallets!) to support our new classroom building for the kids and community we serve in Thailand. Over the last couple months, we've finalized the blueprints for the new building; so, now all we need is the funds to build it! We're still hoping to begin and complete construction in 2012.

In the meantime, our programs continue to thrive at the current facility, with dozens of children coming every day after school and on the weekends to learn and play. However, our Thai staff recently brought two urgent needs to our attention:

  1. The donated desk chairs that the students have used since we first opened the center have broken from constant use and need to be replaced. At the moment, we don't have enough seating during classes.
  2. The water supply at the center has been drying up, leaving the students, staff, and residents without regular access to clean running water. The locals propose installing a water tank on site to help regulate water availability through dry spells.

We've started another GlobalGiving project (#8843) to help meet this new need. Combined, the desks and water tank installation will cost $4,500. You can give—or encourage your friends to give—by visiting the link below.

Thank you for your continued support! You're a vital part of our work.
