Fah*, pictured above, eagerly walks into the computer lab everyday after school in order to complete her school assignments and to expand her artistic skills. Fah has the resources to do this because of your support!

We are so thrilled to announce our computer lab is complete! As mentioned in the previous project report, we received a check for $8,000. With this donation and the amount we fundraised through GlobalGiving, we were able to furnish the computer lab with all of the necessities. Therefore, we are no longer fundraising for the full $16,000.

With your help, we were able to buy 8 computers and we received 3 gently used computers from The HUG Project, an organization in Chiang Mai. There is also a printer in the computer lab, which will enable our students to create hard copies of materials in order to take them home to study and turn in school assignments. Your gifts will enable our students to have access to resources that are vital in their success and we are so thankful for all of your support.

We are eager to host our first computer workshop in our new computer lab, which will allow 10 students or community members access to a computer at one time. Our first computer workshop will be about the basics of typing and using Microsoft Word.

Thank you so much for all of your support to our prevention programs!

With hope,

It has been a busy time for us at our Resource Center in Chiang Rai. The students are on school break right now, which means the Resource Center has been filled with students playing and learning. We also just had our first parent meeting of the year. Twice a year we gather as an organization and a community to share stories, engage the community with trainings, and award scholarships to our students.

We are thrilled to announce we are halfway to our goal of $16,000 for the computer lab in our new building! We recently received an $8,000 check donation as well as three gently used computers from The HUG Project, an organization in Chiang Mai.

Your gifts are enabling our students access to resources that are vital in their success. An Internet-connected computer lab enables our students to complete homework assignments, learn valuable software, research, & typing skills, as well as pursue niche interests in design, web development, & more.

We are eager to host our first computer workshop in the new computer lab, which will allow 10 students or community members access to a computer at one time. This is huge for us as we currently have 3 computers for over 120 students and a whole village. Not only will our scholarship students have access to the computer lab, the community members will have access as well.  

We will be purchasing the first round of computers soon! We’re honored and encouraged by your belief and investment in SOLD’s work to prevent child exploitation.

Thank you!

With hope,
