This project will provide lunch for hill tribe, stateless and underprivileged students every day for a full school year. Some of our students are not lucky enough to have a breakfast every morning and a dinner every evening. In some cases, this makes their lunch at Half Day School their main source of sustenance. We desperately want all of our students to be healthy and strong so they can focus on their education. Please help us achieve our goal!
The Half Day School provides free education for the children of Patak village (the village surrounding the DEPDC/GMS site) and 6 other villages in the Mae Sai area. These children generally have no nationality (citizenship) or identity papers and do not have enough money to enroll in the formal education system provided by the Thai government. For some students,lunch at HDS is their main source of sustenance for the entire day, and finding funds is becoming harder and harder.
Funds donated towards this project will go directly into the buying of fresh, local ingredients to make healthy lunches daily for underprivileged students.
We will provide lunch daily for 100 at-risk students. Lunch is extremely important to these children, after a nutritious lunch they are ready to focus on their lessons and the vocational skills classes that will equip them for the rest of their lives.
