Support our young campers! Help poor girls and boys start a life as learners at our Camps!

Help us create lifelong learners. Architects of their own future!

Poor village children in Southeast Asia get poor education so they remain poor

 

The Poverty Trap

Poor families cannot afford good education for their children. Unequal wealth equals unequal education. According to the Global Wealth Databook by Swiss Credit Suisse, the richest 1% in Thailand owns 67% of the wealth.

But Technology can be their Friend

Technology can be a poor child’s best friend. Learn to use it and the internet to learn. But teachers do not use technology.

young boys are happy to learn

But Poor Education is a Problem

Village schools are poor. Teaching is traditional memorizing, Children are are bored. Most students can not speak English.

And Conflicts

Decades of conflict in Myanmar have left large numbers of displaced refugee children behind.

And Rural Areas are left behind

Village children do not get the same education as city children. Many drop out, get stuck in low paying jobs and remain poor.

To help village children out of poverty

 
To help and encourage the young generation to be the architects of their own future, to take charge of their learning.

To bring Technology to the Children

To introduce Technology and Internet as Learning Tools

 
To inspire Young and Poor Students to learn.

We encourage and help young learners, campers to help themselves

We arrange Free Learning Camps

In our Camps young villagers learn to use technology and interent to learn about the world, to share, present and express their own opinions. And they learn and gain the confidence to speak English. 

We use Learning by Doing

Our campers are encouraged to learn with the help of technology. Local peers and overseas volunteers help and inspire them. They search online, then share what they learned in presentations and onlineVlogs. They learn to discuss and debate.

  We start a Life Long Learning

Finding out about the free and unlimited learning opportunities on the internet is vital to becoming a lifelong learner! We show young people how to use their smartphones as a tool for learning and personal development.
 

     We provoke and encourage Independent Thinking

No telling, we only ask questions. Camp students look for, find, suggest and discuss answers. We foster critical thinking,  

And our Camps are Free!

Everything is free for our camp students. 
No costs for the camps: lodging, food, fun activities and the thinking is free too!

Our impacts

Help young people take charge of their own learning!

Unequal wealth and incomes mean poor families cannot afford quality education for their children. Thailand enjoys the dubious distinction of being the world’s most unequal nation. According to the Global Wealth Databook by Swiss Credit Suisse, the richest 1% in Thailand owns 67% of the country’s wealth!

Technology can be the poor child’s best friend. If they knew how to use technology, they could use the internet as a learning tool. But poor schools are under-ressourced and teachers don’t know how to use technology !

Children are not motivated to learn. They are bored when they learn by memorizing English and other subjects. Many students can’t even speak English even after many years of study.

Campers Say

The camp made me more confident in myself it helped me to find the real true me. I now know what I want to do in my life and how I can use my abilities in my life for a better future.

The debates make me more confident. I learn English by searching, discussing, not by heart! First the volunteers teach me and then we have to search and find information and discuss with our friends before we present the information.
