THE NEGLECTED AREAS

Rural schools in Thailand have limited access to educational opportunities

Education is a major factor in a growing nation, yet KFAM noticed that not all children in Thailand have access to proper schooling. We started our mission in southern Thailand where countless children do not have the means to complete secondary- or, in many cases, even primary-level education because of the insurgency. This year, we are heading up North to help remote, hard-to-reach, and impoverished communities. We plan on giving the children better school infrastructure, as well as improving their overall quality of life.

ISSUES FACING THE LOCAL POPULATION

Lack of funding has seen families de-emphasize education

We spent time across the region, talking to people and trying to better understand what problems and issues they face. After listening to residents, we realized that children in these provinces faced some of the biggest challenges. The education system in rural parts of Thailand suffers from a lack of government funds needed to improve the students’ performance and the teachers’ quality of teaching.

Yet, this is only half the problem. Most families living in the area don’t understand the importance of education. During our discussions with local women’s groups all over the country, we learned that many families believe education to be a luxury, and one where the costs of uniforms, books, and other supplies they cannot afford.
