At the middle of March, the Half Day School completed a very successful 2011-2012 school year. The new academic year at the Half Day School began on the 23rd of May, 2012. The student’s first exams of the year are also coming up in early October so it will be time for the students prepare for them soon! Thanks to all of your generous assistance, the Half Day School provided vital education, vocational training, and material support for over 150 children from vulnerable communities in Thailand’s northern border areas.
DEPDC has once again come alive with the sounds of students working hard in classes and enjoying their lunch break. Teachers are back in class teaching, English, Mathematics, Thai, Computer skills, Science, Social Studies, Health and various Vocational Skills training. Our blog documents the diverse range of learning opportunities and fun-filled activities that the children of the HDS partake in, which is made possible by generous donors like you.

We are delighted to have received new students and welcome back our old students. As always, I welcome your feedback and suggestions on improving our students’ learning experiences. Once again, on behalf of the Half Day School students and their families, I extend my most sincere thanks to you for making it all possible. From the special contributions of so many friends, we are demonstrating that even the children most at-risk for sex and labor trafficking can learn and grow!
Thank you so much,
