A report from our current volunteers:

” we, the volunteers, took our first day trip together. We’ve all been very excited as we haven’t made a joint trip since we arrived. We were picked up at 9 am by khru noi in the girlhouse. We waited at big c, where we missed the car with noei and niklas several times. Surprisingly, it was fun.
That’s why our second stop was in an umbrella center where fans, paintings and of course umbrellas were made. It was fascinating that every woman in every position knew exactly what to do and was so familiar with every movement of the hand. After this experience, we went to the caves near Chiang Mai. This special action was characterized by many stairs, damp cave walls and temples-like architecture. We loved to see the monkeys and their babies as they came by to get some food. To satisfy our own appetite, we made a short stop for pad Thai and homemade ice cream. Even those who chose “sweet potato” as taste had a great time because of the excellent landscape around us. Shortly afterwards we visited the hot springs that were fun but were also sweaty, since the weather is still not what we would call ” winter
In Germany. Nevertheless, we loved it, although there was always a strange smell of boiled eggs in the air. After some members of our “trip crew” enjoyed a one-hour massage, we were ready again. We went to a chic Vietnamese restaurant that always amazed us.
All in all, we had a great and entertaining time and enjoyed every second because we were allowed to see more of this beautiful country. We are extremely grateful for this opportunity and wanted to thank Khru Noi and Noei for this magnificent day.

Uno and football at the children’s home

Niklas is one of our current volunteers and started supporting the school in Mae Sa in summer.
He teaches English in the village school in the morning and participates in school activities. And when everyone is back home after school, Niklas helps with the daily work. But of course, playing should not be overlooked! Whether Uno or football, everyone wants to play with Niklas! 🙂
Last week, the school won the 2nd prize at the school football championship and Niklas made the headmaster very proud.
Keep it up Niklas! And thank you for your great support!!!

Dedication above…

Hello everyone. Some of you have already heard of Wolfgang Illich, one of our foster parents. He visited his foster children together with his daughter and a while ago we posted some pictures of their last visit. Wolfgang has been an awesome support over the past few years. He works for a German company which works together with ProTechTransfer, owned by Ralf Oberg (founder of Rain Tree Foundation), so at least once a year Wolfgang travels to Thailand for work. But not only for work. He always has presents for his foster children with him and whenever he finds time he also visits them!
Wolfgang wrote a report for the internal magazine of his company. It’s worth a read and the best thing: it’s in English!

Wolfgang, thank you so much for your generous support!

Thank you for join our Open House!

Time flies and the open door of our new students’ dormitory has already taken place a few weeks ago. We wanted to briefly report that we had a nice and successful weekend. Many interested people stopped by and of course our employees from the other children’s homes and our volunteers were there too. We used the open house as an opportunity to do our Staff Retreat the day before, which is held at least once a year. After a common worship our staff cooks/eats together and there usually will be workshops or presentations. The employees of the individual institutions have the opportunity to exchange views and experiences with each other and also with our office staff. Every year we have a great time together and the retreat always stays in everyone’s memory!

Open House

To all RTF followers from Chiang Mai and surrounding area:
On Saturday the time has finally come and we invite you to the Open House in our “Garden Eden” in Doi Saket. It’s the newest of our projects where pupils and students who want to attend a secondary school or university, but whose families cannot make it happen due to financial reasons, will be able to live here in the future. We look forward to your visit
