Year 1 Project Timeline

Jan 22

Jan 23


This project is located in the far north-east of Thailand in rural villages and towns near Chiang Rai. The project provides HIV/AIDS and drug awareness education programs in Thai rural schools, prisons and communities together with simple income-generating projects to support families from the school who are afflicted by disease, and other poor families. By educating and supporting affected families with health education and income-generating projects such as chickens and pigs, it allows children to be kept in school, in a family and in a community.

Why support this

Our partners have worked in this area for over 25 years and have a proven track record in the community. Relationships have been built and consolidated over a long time. Our partners are well networked with local Thai government departments and other NGOs (non- government organisations) in the area. Memorandums of Understanding are in place with local detention and rehabilitation centres, schools and other community groups. Income-generating projects give families a way to stay together and to support themselves and send children to school.


$17,500 for year 1 of a 2yr project. Total budget $35,000.

Objectives Include

  • 6 education programs in prisons per year
  • 20 education programs in schools per year
  • 6 youth detention education programs
  • 13 income- generation projects annually

Expected Life Change

  • Economic empowerment of the family in a community setting allows children to grow up in a more stable environment, to have better nutrition and to attend school
  • Simple income-generating projects encourage families to become productive members of their own community
  • Education on HIV/AIDS/drug awareness empowers children to protect themselves from predatory harm and behaviours
