A hard time in the rainy season

2014-07-31 09:46 by Thomas

During this time of the year most of the roads in the mountains are in a pretty bad condition and are almost impassable. But out team is taking any efforts to make sure that all children are cared for and everything necessary is supply to the projects. Their encouragement is highly appreciated and without such a team our work would be useless.

Tough Canadian Team did a great job

2014-07-17 14:11 by Thomas

A big, big thank you to Taylor, Leah, Eric, Jonathan, Lindsey, Amy and Jamie for your help in the Mae Hae children’s home. We know the conditions were quite hard since a lot of rain and muddy pathways made it difficult to even walk upright. Spending hours on the field to digging holes to plant coffee tree’s and carry stones for the farm’s nursery foundation. Thanks as well to your home community who supported us to build this nursery. The children will miss you all especially playing and sliding in the mud down the hill.

Community Help

2014-07-04 10:26 by Thomas

We are glad to help more children to get a better education or even the access to such. In a small village in the Mae Hong Son district of northern Thailand was a little children home established by the community. We helped them in the past and continue in the future since it’s a great initiative from the local community which we really love to support. With only a little help we can do so much for the underprivileged. If you want to help too, please contact us http://www.raintree-foundation.org/index.php?id=224

Parents meeting

2014-05-15 10:43 by Thomas

The new school term start by the mid of May and we invited all the parents and relatives from the children staying in the children home. It is more like a review for the last term and a future plan for the coming school year. So the children’s parents, our hostel parents and the head master from the school have the possibility to share their expectations as well as common ideas on how we can care for the children better to improve their lives. For us it’s important to have a close and good relationship to be a big family.

RTF Staff Retreat

2014-04-07 13:34 by Thomas

The RTF team rarely has the chance of getting all together. That's why, once a year, we do a staff retreat to spend some quality time together. This year we went to Mae Ngat, a reservoir about an hour away from Chiang Mai. All the staff from the mountains could get together, and we had plenty of time to share, relax and of course... eat!

 

English for Children

2014-03-31 12:13 by Thomas

Since we started our English teaching program in the mountain schools in northern Thailand our students have improved their grades in an average of 40%!
Thank you to all the English teachers that have helped us achieve this, without your effort this wouldn't have been possible.

New bedding for the children

2014-03-20 13:42 by Thomas

Look at the children’s faces how happy they are. Through generous support we have been able to supply new beddings towards a school with hostel with 50 children in the Mae Hong Son district in Northern Thailand. Another 22 children in the greater Mae Sariang area, south-west of Mae Hong Son, also received new blanket, bed sheets and pillows. Both places were in need for a long time and the old beddings have been used for years and most of them covered with holes. Since we sleep almost one third of our lives proper bedding is not less essential like cloths, food, water and hygiene. Now the children can sleep in a clean, comfortable and healthy new bed, prepared and well rested for the day to learn at school and playing games. A big thank you to Uli, Helmut, their friends and patrons as well as all the other involved to help us to help the children.
