Summary

Young Hill Tribe girls in remote impoverished villages in the mountains of Northern Thailand have little chance to escape a life of poverty. Educational opportunities are minimal. Too often girls turn to the sex trade industry for survival. We offer an alternative choice. We begin by helping them learn the Thai language so they can attend public school, provide the required uniforms, school supplies, transportation, after school tutoring, health care, and a loving home with nutritious meals.

Challenge

When they first arrive most of the girls speak little Thai, if any. They come from different cultures and frequently from broken or abusive situations. They are behind in their education and need to catch up with Thai grade level standards. Their self-esteem may be low, and they struggle to fit in with Thai peers, often being teased for their difference. Against all odds, they persist, and break the cycle of poverty.

Solution

Warm Heart empowers them to succeed. We provide the tools needed to pursue higher education, including financial and emotional support. We expand their world, open their eyes to the many career possibilities they can pursue, with a view of the outside world and the opportunity to dream and achieve. We introduce them to the six success traits: Commitment, Confidence, Courage, Creativity, Determination, and Integrity. Through various workshops, we help raise their confidence and self-esteem.

Long-Term Impact

Higher education is a must to succeed. So far we have one college graduate, 2 in their final year at University, and 10 currently attending higher education pursuing careers in Nutrition, Tourism and Hospitality, Nursing and English. These successful young women are role models for all of our children at Warm Heart, providing inspiration and encouragement to the younger girls to continue their education. These young women stay connected to their villages and influence generations to come.
