MORE ABOUT THE PROBLEM YOU’LL BE HELPING TO FIX

Poor children get poor education. Many drop out of school and are stuck in low paying jobs. Young people in Southwest Asia score poorly on international tests. Children are not motivated to learn. A study found that 51 % of the Thai population are employed in agriculture and 31% of these are unpaid women.  In Northeast Thailand, 85% of the farmers are smallholders, unable to meet their basic financial needs from their farm only.  Young women face least opportunities. Many of the women are classified as unpaid family workers.

OUR SOLUTION

We help people to learn to learn. We fight poverty through education and by inspiring people. We inspire children to become learners. English and IT skills are key gateways to a better life. Our innovative education, learning by doing style transforms young students from memorizes to independent learners. We empower the impoverished by giving them knowledge and the skills to use it!
