Send 70 At-risk Children to School in Thailand
by DEPDC
 
This project (Half Day School) provides free primary education and vocational skills training to 70 Burmese, Thai and hill tribe children ages 4-19. These children do not have full Thai citizenship and do not have the right to attend government school. They are, as a result, at significant risk of being sold into forced commercial sex work or slave labor. project reportread updates from the field
Help to repair HDS's school buses
by DEPDC
 
DEPDC's Half Day School (HDS) provides free education to stateless and ethnic minority children from all over Mae Sai District that have no other chance to receive education. We use two trucks, one pick-up truck and one truck modified as a bus, to provide free transportation to our students that would otherwise have no chance to come to school from their villages. Both trucks now need to have major maintenance work done to ensure safe transportation to school for our students. project reportread updates from the field
Literacy Training for an Ethnic Minority Community
by DEPDC
 
Donations support our Community Learning Centre (CLC) Program to provide free literacy and human rights education to up to 200 migrants per month in the local area of northern Thailand. These often stateless individuals are at significant risk of being trafficked into an exploitative situation such as forced sex work or hard manual labor. Having the opportunity for academic, vocational, language, and human rights education significantly reduces this risk and opens the door to future security. project reportread updates from the field
Help To Provide Lunch For Half Day School Students
by DEPDC
 
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! project reportread updates from the field
