New sponsorships for children in Thailand
Our Chairman Ole Hoyer visited our schools in Surin in northeastern Thailand in December 2021.
In Thailand, Periamma currently support 4 schools, and Ole can report on well-functioning schools, even though one of the schools has been hit hard by the Corona pandemic. The children have access to computers, the school buildings are in good condition, and all the kids are equipped with high quality learning material (schoolbooks, experienced teachers, nice classrooms etc.)
The challenge that our schools is facing is more on an emotional level. When visiting the schools, we found out that 30% of the parents of the school children are divorced. The consequence of that is that the parents leave their children to live with grandparents or other family members. The parents then travel to larger cities to look for work and often ends up not coming back or staying in regular contact with their children.
This is obviously a big trauma for the children as they do not get the emotional support needed in order to thrive optimally when growing up. The teachers in 4 schools mentioned, that this affects the kid’s ability to function and to properly learn and develop in the school compared to the well-functioning students.
In the coming 2-3 years, Periamma has therefore decided to offer new sponsorships to those school children that do not live with their parents. You can see some of the children on the picture to the left, and should you be interested in becoming a sponsor family for one of the children, please click on DONATE to the upper right, and you can choose if you want to sponsor a boy or a girl at one of our schools in Thailand.
