A small present for the best students
2015-08-05 13:46 by Thomas
One of the schools we support started again last week. After reviewing the student grades through the teacher team they nominated the best students from each class. It is our aim to encourage the children that hard work in school and learning is essential and fundamental for their future. So we rewarded each of the year’s best students with a little present and a celebration afterwards. Even little things can make a different – give it a try.
Beautification of a local school
2015-07-30 10:38 by Thomas
Last week the headmaster of a local school in Northern Thailand, which we work closely together and also is in charge of taking care of the foster children in this area, did an awesome job. He initiated a beautification of the whole school and facilities. Villagers, parents and all the children have been involved to color and paint walls, windows, chairs, tables to make them shine again in a bright and nice finish. Such a great initiative from the local community, showing that they all care about their children and the education facilities. This should be an example for other villages and communities to provide a caring and loving environment which even can be beautifully decorated to enjoy learning and study.

Due to the great effort and dedication from Uli & Helmut and their friends we have been able to supply the kids from the children’s home in Mae Hae with new items. Old stuff was sorted out and a lot of worn out bedding replaced by new towels, pillows, blankets, socks, mosquito nets and school bags. The children learn how to take care of their personal things but here and there things broke, get lost and are just used up after a certain time and, hey, these are still kids, aged 5 to 14 years old. Our aim is not only provide the children with food, shelter and education but also with appropriate conditions within their daily lives which includes bedding, personal hygiene, school supplies and toys. If you like what you see and want to know more about our projects please feel free to contact us through our webpage or on Facebook and spread the word. Thank you Uli & Helmut for your ongoing support.
Great time and activity with the PCZ Team
2015-06-26 13:52 by Thomas
Just right at the beginning of this week we were glad to have the team of the PCZ (Payap Christian Zone) with us in the mountains. The 14 interns, the pastor and our volunteer Micha had done a great job in planning and arranging a 3 day program in the Mae Hae children’s home. The first day was a full day at the local school with a lot of games, teaching, singing and for sure a lot of fun. The second day we removed a hut which was used to dry coffee bean and relocated it on another spot on the children’s home. That was perfect to demonstrate real team work and a great experience for everyone. The evenings were filled with songs, games, drama play and stories and we all had a good time together. It was awesome to show the children in the children’s home that other people also care about them and are dedicated to train and teach them and show them different games and songs and also share about their own lives.

Thank you Anja and friends

It was very nice to catch up with Anja again, who visited Thailand the first time 3 years ago. Right from the beginning she was dedicated to help the children and collecting donations throughout the year. Mostly on public events and Christmas market but also through self made handicraft sales and close friends. We have been able to use the donation right away for the children home in Mae Na Chorn to buy new shoes, socks, mosquito nets, backpacks and schools supplies for the 30 students in the home. Anja joined us on our trip to the children home and witnessed the happy faces and big smiles of the children receiving the goods. We want to thank Anja and her friends and all people involved to make these happen.

New foster children need help
2015-03-19 12:16 by Thomas
Presently the Rain Tree Foundation and ThaiCare e.V. are supporting over 90 foster children in Northern Thailand. Our aim is to provide help and support to those who are in need without taking the children into a children home. The sponsored families are in difficult situations and therefore not able to provide essential things like proper food, clothes, toys, medical care etc.
With a monthly support we can provide the children with healthy and enough food, proper accommodation and bedding, possibility to attend schools, clothes and school uniforms, toys, medical and dental care, a birthday gifts, and summer camps.
Now we have a couple of new children and families which depending on additional help. With a little contribution you can change the live of a child dramatically for the better and enable them to have a positive and good future perspective.
If you want to know more about our foster program or want to take direct action please contact us to receive more details and information.
50 more Bio Sand Filters successfully installed
2015-03-04 15:47 by Thomas
It is great to see the ongoing support towards our foundation to help the underprivileged to receive clean drinking water. We have been able to deliver and install 50 more bio sand filter units in the village Ban Mae Pa Kee. Thanks to the generous support of the Swiss Embassy in Bangkok (which was an add on from their last 200 filter project in 12.2014), Immuno Tools, the Gesinas Stiftung and a lot of friends and private donors. Water borne diseases are still common all over the world and are not only responsible for the dead of many children but also has a big influence for families concerning income, sick days at home, medicine and hospital costs, just to name a few. We know we can’t change the whole world but at least we can improve and change the lives of the people living around us.
