Help in Education
Happy Heart Foundation’s main concern in to help children with education. It is very important for every child to have an opportunity and the right to learn. Education is a very powerful tool in one’s life and therefore, our foundation help to provide aids for education such as books, stationary and building a library full of exciting books to read and learn from. Once children learn how to read and write then they are able to think and live on their own in the future.
Happy Heart foundation does not only focus upon in-class learning, but also educate children in everyday life. We promote ‘learning by doing’ and teach them the art of survival from outside the classroom. This is because, the children that we are focusing on are children from the hill tribes up in the North of Thailand. They randomly go to school and their parents do not see the importance of education and prefer to let them work in corn fields as an extra workforce. We persuaded parents to send their children to school and we support them for education and food at school and this is how parents agree to send their children’s to school. We realise that we need to help our children in education outside the classrooms as it fits better with their lifestyle. We introduce the ‘sufficient living’ program which is what our King highly believes in. This is the program whereby children grow their own crops and sell to school and earn money from it. We try to teach them the basic for their daily lives.
