Community Leader Training Completed

Yesterday we had the graduation ceremony of 20 community leaders that joined our monthly training with 12 sessions, each lasting for 3 days. The topic’s of the training included promoting healthy lifestyle, hygiene, family planning, financial management, solutions for all sorts of addictions and social problems. We trust that this knowledge will enable the community leaders to have a positive impact for the people they are working with. The community leaders are working mainly among seas gypsies villages in Ranong province, South Thailand. During the past year we already saw some positive results and we look forward to further help those communities. Since the Tsunami impacted the Moken people we could help them through child educational projects and are committed to further help them.
