Give Something Back to the Land of Smiles
Have you enjoyed hollidays in Thailand?In 2010 over 810,000 British tourists did..
The Land of Smiles is a great destination and still remarkable value for money, but one of the reasons goods and services are cheap is because wages are low and there is little welfare support for the population. In principle, Thailand provides free schooling, but the poorest children don’t benefit from it because they can’t afford the extra costs they do have to pay: for school books, pencils and paper, school uniforms, bus fares, and after-school activities.
For the past 20 years the Anglo-Thai Foundation has been helping the most impoverished schoolchildren in Northeast Thailand (Isaan) to break out of the vicious circle of poverty and enjoy the schooling they are entitled to.
The Thai Government recognises the problem and has provided modest grants out of the state budget from 2010 but unfortunately considerably more is needed.
