We would like to raise enough money to help the next village school.
We usually raise around 150,000bht (5,000USD). We would like to raise that amount for our January trip to Northern Thailand.
This will allow us to re-build a school, feed the children, rent vehicles to get out to the village and provide new clothes, school supplies and toys for the children.
The funding will go towards food and supplies.
We usually feed three meals a day for two to three villages full of children for a week (300 children and their families).
We rent local vehicles from around Chiangmai for a week to carry us and the supplies out to the village.
We purchase a years worth of school supplies and deliver them to a village. If we have more supplies than one village school will need, we take the remainder and give them out to other villages in the Hill Tribe Area. Last year, we were able to help several schools in the area.
We purchase clothing, shoes and winter coats for the children as well. We usually purchase clothing on the Thai-Burmese border. We can obtain mass amounts of clothing from this area fairly cheaply. We donate all of this clothing to the children and in some cases to the local adults. On the border, we purchase “lots” full of children’s clothing. However, one never knows what will be in the mix. Any adult clothing that we obtain, we hand out at the village.
Last year, we had enough left over clothing to pass out to several villages along our route.
We also hope to raise enough funds to employ a full time teacher and teaching assistant for this village for a year.
We will use all funds raised to help these children.
I am donating all supplies and materials for the perks as the first donation.
