Informal Learning Activities During Pandemic Time

Dear Children’s Sponsors,

Thank you for your generous donations for our children.

Because of the virus pandemic, Thailand’s ministry of education ordered all schools including Yaowawit to close until June 30, 2020, which practically extended the holiday for another month, which otherwise would have ended in May 2020. However, because Yaowawit is a boarding school and thus also a home, many students remained at the school during the holiday, and a few more had just arrived at the school back from their holiday (figures 1 and 2). The new arrivals go through regular checks of their body temperatures to make sure they are free from any symptoms associated with the coronavirus.

As of now, there are 22 students, and because they are not taking any formal classes, the teachers have assisted them two hours a day with online lessons, which have been provided by Thailand’s ministry of education for school students across the country during this pandemic time. In addition to that, the children stay put at the school at all time. Therefore, your one-time sponsorship donations have been used to buy school materials like books, pens, coloring crayons, pencils, erasers, etc. for this group of students for their learning activities with the online lessons (figures 3, 4, 5, and 6) that in turn occupy some of their free time.

Again, thank you for your generous support.

Kind regards,
Yaowawit Team

Maintenance and One Added

Dear Donors,

This time we needed to maintain three of the snake repellent devices (figures 1, 3, and 4) because they were found pulled out of their spots. Probably some of the kids did that. But the snake repellent devices were all still there. What we needed to do was to plant them again at their designated spots.

The kids from grade 2 lent a hand. They needed to see where the snake repellent devices were planted so that they could also help to look after those devices. One more device was placed by the window of grade-2 classroom (figure 5). This was done because the grade-2 teachers had requested one there because some of the kids had seen some rats there. (Note that rats may attract snakes.)

In the last 3 months after we planted all the snake repellent devices at the strategic spots (figure 2), we have not spotted any snake ever since. The result can be attributed to the summer season that has been occuring in Thailand until June, the impact of the snake repellent devices, and the woods now growing along the hill slope, where snakes may go to hide.

Thank you for your generous support. As this project is still open, please share it with your friends. Any further donations can be saved for any of snake repellent devices that we may buy more for use in the next rainy season.

Kind regards,
Yaowawit Team

Donations Delivered

Dear Children’s Sponsors,

Thank you for your generous donations to support our children. Here we would like to point out that those of you who sponsor our children on a monthly basis, you have already got the progress reports about them from our sponsorship department.

That said, this report is only for those of you who have made one-time donations for the children’s sponsorship. Your donations have already been delivered not only to the kindergartners (Figure 2) but also to the children in primary school grade 1: drawing books and coloring crayons and pencils (Figures 1 and 3), because at this time the kindergartners still have usable drawing materials, but grade 1 students do not. 

The children are very grateful for your support. Please share this project with your friends so that more people can take part in it. 

Thank you for your support.

Kind regards,
Yaowawit Team
