With little or no government funding for most communities in Thailand, it becomes a challenge to tackle the poverty or expected life cycle. We have been working in the community for several years and have supported the development of community members to start projects to tackle the issues they face. Providing quality education and safe community spaces to engage the youth, has now become our main focus with this project as we aim to break the cycle of poverty at the most basic level
Our communities have passionate and highly driven individuals that are ready to engage their peers and tackle global issues however with no safe community spaces, lack of education and financial support from the government these individuals do not have the resources to make a difference. By providing access to these resources, particularly to the children in these communities, we can break the cycle of poverty as they will become empowered and in-turn empower their surrounding community
By funding materials, resources and implementing programs that will be self-sustaining with each partner we hope to develop the community and improve the quality of education the children receive. As children move from grade to grade, they will be able to use the same resources. Examples of such resources include projectors, computers, sunscreen dispensers, desks and an established garden.
By providing a new source of funding we will be able to help our community in a multitude of new ways to become self-sustaining as well as providing an improved quality of education which we hope will allow children to break the cycle of poverty. Currently, we have limited budgets for resources that we use in our classes and for small items our partners may need. With funding, we will be able to help and support our partners more, both in and outside the classroom.
