Foster Children Visit

Foster Children Visit
Just last week the team of the Rain Tree Foundation visited all of the foster children within their projects. Thanks a lot to all foster parents who make us able to provide education, food, clothing and health care to over 100 children in Northern Thailand. The goal of our foster program is to support the families and children to attend school, providing a better nutrition and clothing as well as access to health care and medicine instead of taking the children out of their existing environment and family to a hostel or dorm. Hopefully we are able to help many more children in need in 2015. If you want to know more about our foster program, please contact us here.

Volunteering Weekend

We are glad that we have the opportunity to offer volunteer placements within our foundation at schools and children homes. Christine and Dominik came in mid August to stay with us for 1 year to be with the children helping doing their homework, teach English, organize activities and for sure have fun and play games. But we also want them to see a bit more of Thailand during their stay and therefore we having excursions once a month visiting different spots and enjoy the weekend together. The last trip has been to one of our children homes we support and then we went further to the Doi Inthanon, which is the highest mountain in Thailand with a beautiful view over the surrounding valleys. We really appreciate that mostly young people are willing and are dedicated to offer their time and skills towards the people in need. If you want to know more about our volunteer program please don’t hesitate to contact us http://www.raintree-foundation.org/index.php?id=239

Soccer shoes for the children

Thanks to that wonderful donation of almost brand new soccer shoes in various sizes for the teenagers in the children home. We received 12 pairs of almost unused and brand new soccer shoes and forwarded them to the young boys in one of our children homes. Like most of the boy in that age the kids really like to play soccer but mostly with normal shoes or even with bare feet. Their eyes went huge when they saw the shoes and it was a matter of minutes until they figured out which size fits to each and off they went to the nearby soccer field. Thanks to all those, who are always dedicated to support and help those with fewer privileges.

60 more families with clean drinking water

A couple of days ago we finished the installation of another 60 units of BioSand Filters which deliver clean and safe drinking water to each family. As water borne diseases are still a big issue in several parts of the world we focus on educating people and communities as well as to supply drinking water filters. But we wouldn’t be able to supply all that without the help and dedication of so many people, friends, companies, clubs and organization which generously help us through their donations. If you want to know more about our organization or on how you can help please follow the link below on our webpage. http://www.raintree-foundation.org/index.php?id=224

A hard time in the rainy season

During this time of the year most of the roads in the mountains are in a pretty bad condition and are almost impassable. But out team is taking any efforts to make sure that all children are cared for and everything necessary is supply to the projects. Their encouragement is highly appreciated and without such a team our work would be useless.

Tough Canadian Team did a great job

Tough Canadian Team did a great job
A big, big thank you to Taylor, Leah, Eric, Jonathan, Lindsey, Amy and Jamie for your help in the Mae Hae children’s home. We know the conditions were quite hard since a lot of rain and muddy pathways made it difficult to even walk upright. Spending hours on the field to digging holes to plant coffee tree’s and carry stones for the farm’s nursery foundation. Thanks as well to your home community who supported us to build this nursery. The children will miss you all especially playing and sliding in the mud down the hill.

Community Help

We are glad to help more children to get a better education or even the access to such. In a small village in the Mae Hong Son district of northern Thailand was a little children home established by the community. We helped them in the past and continue in the future since it’s a great initiative from the local community which we really love to support. With only a little help we can do so much for the underprivileged. If you want to help too, please contact us http://www.raintree-foundation.org/index.php?id=224
