Project Review

Many children who attend this rural school are from very poor families in the local villages. It is a government school which receives minimal funding and has only 15 teachers. To maintain its operations, the school relies on the support of external donations and volunteers. Volunteers will be working to assist local teachers and improve the educational opportunities of these Thai children. Volunteer teachers will help ensure there is at least one teacher for every class.
