Sponsor A Child’s Education
Welcome to our sponsorship page. The children below are Thai and Burmese students that need your help to come to school! You will be sharing your sponsorship with 9 other people and each of you will be putting $24.40 a month towards one student.
Where Specifically Does Your Money Go?
Your sponsorship will help to cover the costs of having the child at the school:
- Educational Resources
- Teacher Wages
- School Utillity Bills / Rent
- One Off Medical Costs (When needed)
- Snacks x 2 and Hot Lunch x 1 per school day
If money is leftover from your sponsorship, it is rolled over into the rest of the school and goes towards the entire school community and its need.
As a sponsor you will receive:
- School Progress Reports
- Email Updates
You can also organise coming to meet your student and see them at the school in person (this requires passing a security check, as do volunteers).
Burmese Children Going Onto The Waitlist For A New Program
Our New English/Burmese Program for ages 3-5 years of age is up and running successfully. The children on this list have just started school or have been attending the school. The new program includes 4 key focus points –
- Early Childhood Development
- Conversational English & Phonics
- Burmese Language & Character Recognition
- Numeracy Basics
We are pleased to announce we have hired our first Burmese teacher, after many years of searching! This is a very exciting prospect for children living on Koh Tao from Myanmar. This means they can stay in the school longer and they will have a smoother transition back into schools in Myanmar when they reach high school.
The children in this program are being prepared for primary school. We are aiming at having 25 children in this group, with your help!
Your gift of sponsorship WILL have a huge impact on the lives of these children. As one father said to me…
“When I took my daughter to look at school in our village, the toilet had no door, no water and everything was dirty. We have no insurance or money for doctors. If my child gets sick there is nothing that can be done.” – Kyaw
Choosing between keeping your child safe and educating them is a really tough choice, one that no parent should have to make.
