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

Parents meeting for the new school term

The new school term start by the mid of May and we invited all the parents and relatives from the children staying in the children home. It is more like a review for the last term and a future plan for the coming school year. So the children’s parents, our hostel parents and the head master from the school have the possibility to share their expectations as well as common ideas on how we can care for the children better to improve their lives. For us it’s important to have a close and good relationship to be a big family.

RTF Staff Retreat

The RTF team rarely has the chance of getting all together. That’s why, once a year, we do a staff retreat to spend some quality time together. This year we went to Mae Ngat, a reservoir about an hour away from Chiang Mai. All the staff from the mountains could get together, and we had plenty of time to share, relax and of course… eat!
