Older students with teachers and guests
Dhammajarinee’s new school year began in early July with 1100 students. All hearts go out to you for helping to bring to our school the additional 100 students over what we had last year.
Your donation has helped greatly with the transportation to bring the new and returning students to Dhammajarinee from some of the most remote regions of Thailand.
Over half of Dhammajarinee’s operating expenses go to provide three meals a day, plus and afternoon snack to all students. Your donation is also helping greatly with this.
In addition to standard quality educational curriculum, Dhammajarinee offers programs to develop talents like traditional Thai music and dance, through the help of volunteers and experts in these fields
Your donation is helping these four bright, happy students complete their education, left to right:
Dhammajarinee official: Ms. Chakriya Pinitratana-anant Teachers’ Rep.
Naparat, age 10, came at age 3. Her parents struggled to find employment and had to move constantly throughout the country to get work and thus they were unable to take care of her education or needs.
Wateerat, age 16, came just over a year ago. She lived with her sister-in-law and suffered extreme emotional swings. She was recommended to come to Dhammajarinee and in a short time has found calm, happiness and emotional control and loves studying English and Music.
Sunisa, age 10, came at age 6 from the northern remote Hill Tribes of Thailand. Education opportunity was extremely limited so her single mother wanted to give her the best education possible.
Nishakan, age 18, came at age 9. Due to poverty her parents worked night and day and could not take care of her. Nishikan said, ‘I love this school because it is so orderly and quiet. This school gave me a new life, a chance to meet and have so many great friends for the first time in my life.’
We are excited to alert you to stand by for a wonderful GlobalGiving (GG) matching fund opportunity coming up 14-18 Sept. We will send you an update on this with details closer to this date. In brief, during those four days:
GG will match 50% all donations up to $50 dollars And if anyone signs up to give a recurring monthly donation, GG will match 100% the first time, plus provide the 50% match up to $50.
Heartfelt thanks to you for being part of Dhammajarinee’s success !
