School Award !

Another success in school competition!
Once again, our kids were delighted that they had done well in a competition. At the “Good Thinker, Good Morality, Ensuring Greatness 2018” award in Mae Hong Son Province, several of our children’s contributions from our Wat Chan project were successful. Nathanon and Warumporn have even won the Golden Award of Mae Hong Son Province and have received certificates and prizes for their outstanding craftsmanship.

Trauma Healing

Last week, our team in Chiang Mai attended a trauma seminar. Peggy, a longtime acquaintance of Raintree, works as a trained therapist and has trained our staff to deal with past and present traumas.
It was not just about dealing with oneself and illuminating one’s own problems, but above all about being able to better assess the children of our projects. In the future, we will be able to work even better and more intensively with our children.
Not only our office staff attended the seminar, but also the house parents of the children’s homes, for whom this seminar is particularly important!

One Team

For more than 8 years we’ve been working together with our partner organization Thai Care e.V. in Germany very closely! In addition to the daily e-mails that are required to be able to run our foster project optimally, to discuss donation purposes and to inform each other about activities and work content, we also skype together regularly.
These skype dates are always fun and of course very effective. A lot can be discussed via Skype in an hour, which would otherwise take a half day of e-mailing each other back and forth. And skype gives you a great sense of community despite the distance of 8,500km … There are no borders! We are ONE team!
And over the time we became friends, so sometimes even our dogs are lifted into the picture and are greeted warmly 😀
Transparency is the top priority of both organizations, which makes Thai Care e.V. to one of the best partners we can imagine!

Children’s home gets new solar pump!

The donation of the company Kreyenhop & Kluge GmbH & Co. KGhelped us to finally realize the dream of a solar pump for the children’s home in Mae Hae.
The water supply for the children’s home has always been our top priority, because the village Mae Hae is located off the civilization in the mountains of Northern Thailand and is not connected to the state water supply mains.
During the past weeks a solar water pump has been successfully installed and put into operation with the help of the great donation.
The water, only operated by the sun, flows now into the children’s home and supplies everyone with water from a river. The water is used for watering the plants and vegetables and feeding the animals.
Of course after processed into clean drinking water using our biosand filters it’s also used for drinking and cooking  🙂

On behalf of all children’s home residents in Mae Hae and the teams of RTF and Thai Care e.V., we thank you for the generous donation!
