Never too Young

Never too Young

It is the belief of the Foundation that it is never too young to begin the process of training a child in good morals and character, because we are confident that when we train up a child in the way he should go... when he is old, he will not depart from it. Indeed it is imperative to give the young ones a solid foundation to LIFE!

The Foundation therefore began pilot projects to reach out to the Pre-schoolers from ages 4 to 6 years, and developing a curricula that would be suitable for the littles to understand and participate in, in a meaningful and impactful way.

While the pilot project was going on, a little girl, Hannah from another part of the world was encouraged by her parents to save up so that she could present her efforts to Aunt V, whom she knows works with the little children living in the Slum Community in Thailand.

Hannah's parents caught hold of Aunt V one day and said that Hannah had filled up her Girly Bank and would like to present it. "The coins in this are for the kids in Thailand," said Hannah, feeling shy as she hands over the Girly Bank to Aunt V.

Meanwhile, Aom, the assistant manager and supervisor of the daycare centre in the Klong Toey slums, has this to say of her children under the program, "I noticed that the children now learnt to live, play and work with other children well!"

To all donors and supporters of our project :- you will never know how much  your efforts has helped the underprivileged children and youths in our projects. All of us, both Volunteers and Receipients would like to take this opportunity to Thank You and wishing you a Very Happy and Prosperous Year in 2016!

Best Regards!From All in The Foundation

Taking a Stance of Readyness

Taking a Stance of Readyness

While  some volunteers of the Foundation were busy planning and organising  for supporters to come together to knit the Winter Hats (or Beannies), the land of Thailand faced the coming onslaught of the rainy season.

Downpours triggered by tropical storm Mujigae has caused 32 provinces to be put on alert. Residents were warned about heavy downpours , possibly cause flooding, runoff and landslides. Of the 32 provinces, 13 are in the North. In the province of Phitsanulok, where one of our volunteers reside, she was also on the lookout for any changes in the river level, because that's where the usual floods would take place.

Ever ready for an emergency, Saenchan told us, "Any time that you need  help, just let me know, for I have made myself available."

Meanwhile further south of Bangkok in Ratchaburi, continuous rains caused water levels in a crocodile farm's pits to rise, and 6 baby crocodiles escaped while workers were draining excessive water into a nearby canal. 4 were caught and 2 are still at large. (as reported by the Nation)

These are some of the dangers locals face, when the rainy season bring with it the floods. On top of this, families whose members consist of the elderly or the very young, has to contend with diseases that arise from being in water all the time, or from contaminated drinking water and unhealthy and damp living conditions.

Therefore, the Foundation has to be on the alert for any help that might be needed, taking a stance of readyness , for any emergencies that we can assist the needy in.

As such, the Foundation is thankful to all donors who enable and empower us to be channels for blessings to others.

Any feedback is most welcome to aid us to serve others better.

Leaders for the Next Generation

Leaders for the Next Generation

When it came time for our annual young leaders camps, our young leaders were all looking forward to the training, knowing that they will bring home tangible skills and know-how back to their local communities, and to put these leadership skills to practical use.

The camps are usually  run during the school vacations, which happen to be the rainy season as well. However, the Foundation was thrilled that even though there may be various challenges for them, 200 campers turned up for the camps.

In the camps they were taught on the skills of managing small groups, how to teach a craft (instructional skills), learnt how to care for others especially those younger members in the camps, and take some calculated risks like doing jumps off a tower. Meanwhile, they were also physically tested on their endurance and teamwork.

Karina a young leader who is now 16 years and has been in our leadership camps since she was 11 years old, says, "I have gained confidence and leadership skills from these camps.  A leader is one who serves and looks after others..". She even volunteered to go with the team of staff and volunteers to prepare the campsite, before the campers arrived!

As for Ice, he reflects,"Before, I didn't have discipline to do anything, but now, I have better discipline.." For him it overflowed into his daily life in simple things like getting up early in the morning, so that he is in time for school.

With all the challenges and distractions of the present world, it was not easy for pre-teens and teens to be able to even think of others,much less serve others. Therefore the Foundation finds this work challengeing and fufilling, to see young leaders take up their stand against selfish gratification and materialism.

The Foundation is grateful for all the support and partnership rendered to us and welcome any feedback that will enhance our ministry to the young people  who will leader their own generation!

Best regards!
