"Photographerswithoutborders" presents the work of the Raintree Foundation!

The Canadian non-profit organization works with volunteers from the field of photography and film, as they are invaluable in communicating news, sharing perspectives, promoting intercultural understanding, and inspiring others. This is why PWB (photographerswithoutborders) is increasingly committed to organizations that have a significant impact in areas such as health, education, conservation, human rights, sustainability and innovation.
We are, of course, very excited that PWB has also found the way to us and has created a really great report our biosand filters.

Foster Trip in the rainy season in Northern Thailand

2017-05-31 08:54 by Thomas

Our latest foster children trip was interrupted by heavy rain falls and muddy roads and made it some days impossible to drive to the villages. But our office staff and our local field staff don’t mind difficult situations and took the challenge again. For us it is important to see our foster children regularly to ensure they are well taken care of, they are healthy and nourished well and to just chat with them if there are any issues, problems or else. The aim is to equip and enable them, to attend school for a better future perspective. If you are interested in our foster program or our other projects just contact us for English or for German!

Surprising visit for one of our foster children

2017-04-25 14:32 by Thomas

During the Thai New Year “Song Kran” the foster parent Patric came to Northern Thailand and went with our Team to visit his foster child. Jansu is a 13 year old girl living with her sick mother in a remote village. Their house is a simple bamboo structure without running water and a barely functioning bathroom. But Jansu attends school regularly, gets good grades and her dream is to become a nurse when she graduates. She helps to plant vegetables, harvest rice and help her mother wherever she can.

Without our foster program she would not be able to attend school that’s why support is priceless and Patric took the opportunity to visit her in person. It was a big surprise and beside a few new items for the mother and their kitchen, Jansu got a new backpack for school and a few new clothes. She is such a strong and confident girl and we are so grateful to being able to support her.

Fun at the 3D Museum

2017-03-31 15:19 by Thomas

Last weekend the children from the children's home in Mae Hae visited the Paradise in Art Museum in Chiang Mai.
The children had a lot of fun to "beam into" all sorts of situations. Whether as pandas, surfers or in a lava landscape ... they really enjoyed the day trip. :-)
Thanks to our house parents and our girls from the office in Chiang Mai who accompanied the children and offered them a great day!

Winner !

2017-03-09 08:32 by Thomas

We are so happy to see the achievements of the children!
Chanchai, one of the children from our foster project, won the first price in a race at a school competition. He was the fastest runner at his age in the whole district. But not only that… 
About 2 weeks later the province competition took place where the best children from the district took part. And guess what, Chanchai won the province race as well and got honored with a trophy and a certificate for his sporting achievements. 
We are happy to see our children taking their own steps and reach their goals in all different kinds of activities.
If you also want to know more about our foundation and what we do please don’t hesitate to contact us!
