OUR STORY

Mari

Mari

Mari, age 8, was born to opium addicted parents in a hilltribe village where ethnic minorities live in the border areas with Myanmar in the mountains and forest, often in terrible poverty. They have little or no road to access medical services or education.  Some families choose to keep the children for domestic labor. Mari was abused, neglected, roaming around the village hungry.
Somchai

Somchai

When Somchai, age 6, was born, his father was in jail, his mother worked as a prostitute to earn enough money for them to live.  He constantly felt life and death danger was right at his doorstep.  He felt nobody liked him, and he had no friends at school.  Eventually he was sent to an orphanage, which he hates. He dreams of a free life with the nurturing love from an adult which he never got. 
Nok

Nok

Nok, age 10, cannot read. The teachers said she was lazy and did not try hard enough.

She believed what the teachers said and so acted lazy and stupid. Nok is not alone. Thailand suffers from a chronic lack of trained special education teachers, and as a result 30% of 15-year-old students are illiterate. Many drop out of school and cycle back to the poverty they came from.
