World Water Day

Today is International World Water Day!
This year, this day is under the common theme “Nature-based solutions for the water”.
The aim of the UNESCO World Water Day is to draw attention to the importance of water as a livelihood for humanity.

And what fits better to the topic than our biosand filter?
Down to the present day, we have already set well over 2000 of these filters in the northern mountainous regions of Thailand, so that families living there are supplied with good, purified drinking water!

WASH training with Leigh from Canada

Thank you Leigh for being with our foundation and train us on WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene). Even in such a short time you made a big impact; not only teaching our office staff and in one of our children’s homes but also being such a dedicated and open minded person. Presently we prepare more material to teach the children of the other homes what we’ve learned.

Everybody knows about the basics of WASH but barely anybody realizes that it is not simply washing your hands after certain occasions. There is much more behind those big words: water, sanitation and hygiene. We hope to brace the people and especially the children for more awareness so they learn how to improve lives with simple but important practices.

Thank you Leigh for your great help and your time with us and our team. ☺
For more details and info about the Raintree Foundation or our partner ThaiCare e.V. please contact us and share as much as possible throughout social media.

The Manlift Way

Thank you so much to the entire team of “Manlift” and Ian, for your visit at our children’s home next to the Hot Coffee Guesthouse and especially for the absolutely generous donation towards the children. The team consists of a group of cyclist friends from Dubai and while on their way doing the Mae Hong Son loop, our team met them for a small break at the Hot Coffee Guesthouse to directly receive their donation to support the children’s home ☺
Our teams from the Raintree Foundation, Thai Care e.V. and the Hot Coffee want to thank the whole team again for the big contribution to help us to help others and change lives.

Nam Som Kindergarten

Nam Som Kindergarten

What a great success! First we want to thank Zyagnum and Gesinas for their contribution and help towards the Raintree Foundation and Thai Care e.V..

At the Nam Som school in the Wat Chan area there was the need of a new kindergarten. The parents and teachers started building it by themselves with recycled framework and roof tiles and put in all their time to work for the community. But still there was a need for funding floor tiles, wood for the walls, color and equipment. Through the great help of Zyagnum and Gesinas the kindergarten was finished in short time with all villagers, parents, teachers and even children involved in the building process. What a great example of working with and for your own community, which is exactly what ThaiCare e.V. and the Raintree Foundation focuses on. Help people to help themselves!

Thank You J
