Temporary School Closure
We will be re-opening the school with a fresh start through our new Thai Foundation- “Right to Learn Foundation” (RTL). I will be focusing on this project and will no longer carry the school on my shoulders alone. For now, the school will remain closed until pending funding is approved through the foundation board.
RTL will allow the school to run legally and receive donations within Thailand and overseas. This is a big step!
We are the first licensed and legal charity in the south of Thailand, and it has cost many thousands of dollars and years of backbreaking work with Bangkok lawyers and Government officials to complete. This groundbreaking achievement is expected to attract support from within Thailand and worldwide.
Koh Tao International Primary will be the first project on the RTL agenda. This will be a blueprint for future school projects and will provide sustainable solutions for the school and its families including farmland, village housing, volunteer housing, and emergency accommodation for students.
The Foundation board will consist of lawyers, teachers, local leaders, and of course myself, Claire Wyndham!! All donations will be received through the foundation, and follow a strict process for project and donation approval according to Thai Foundation Law.
RTL aims to open schools all over South East Asia and worldwide once we have made a success of the Koh Tao School project.
We See and Know The Needs Personally
The great thing about being on Koh Tao, is that we understand what the needs really are and can address them quickly and efficiently in realtime. We can continue to keep you updated with pictures and videos of the community and the children on social media so keep watching our social media!
This is Not Goodbye
The Koh Tao Kids are not going anywhere. They are here to stay and so are we. I will never abandon my kids, I will continue my work through Right to Learn even if I have to work 10 jobs to do it!
I would like to thank you all for your support, love and encouragement throughout what has been the toughest year in my life on record. Many of you have kept me going with your donations, messages and social shares. To lead a mission like this takes more than I have, and for whatever reason, many of you have swooped in and saved the day too many times to count.
I will transfer this email list to a Right To Learn list in about 30 days. I hope to see you all on the other side for the next chapter of our big adventure.

Koh Tao childcare tourist info
We started a not for profit international school, “Koh Tao International Primary“, and invested in my friend’s Kindergarten / Daycare operation to help sustain the school and needs of the community. The next natural step was to promote the fact that we had a Koh Tao childcare facility for tourists to help fund the not for profit school and support the daycare.
Koh Tao Daycare for Tourists & Koh Tao International Primary is a not for profit school for local Thai and Burmese children living on the island of Koh Tao in Thailand. For bookings please phone: +66 954270414
