Plans for the fall

Hi everybody!

Fall is upon us...at least here in the States. In Thailand, rainy (read: monsoon) season continues and our wonderful intern, Zoe Hart, who's been busy this summer teaching art and music to the kids at the Resource Center, is wrapping up her time with us. (We'll miss you, Zoe!)

In our last report in June, we shared about a special matching gift opportunity, and you all turned out to support us! Thank you! Not only did you help us fully fund our project to provide the Resource Center with consistent access to running water, you gave nearly $2,000 towards our second classroom! As soon as weather conditions permit we'll complete construction on the water tank, tower, and filter system, and prepare the land and lay the foundation for the classroom. Tawee, our Thailand Director, is busy making preparations and we can't wait to get started.

We're still $2,300 short from our funding goal for Phase 2 of the classroom, but we're confident we can reach that goal before the end of the year. In fact, mark your calendars—GlobalGiving will be matching your gifts again on October 17! (We love it when they do that!)

Also, this November, The SOLD Project has been invited to participate in the Girl Effect Challenge! This is a huge opportunity and we're really excited to tell you more about it, so stay tuned!

Thank you for your ongoing support of our work to prevent the exploitation of children through education. We're making a difference.

With hope,

Michael Colletto
