It's June 2017 and we have three young women in college and two starting this summer. We need to fund the gap after scholarships and loans and part-time jobs. Warm Heart's Children's Home has been in operation for nine years, going from 5 children the first year, to 45 living in our housing and another 25 supported at nearby schools. These are all children from remote hill tribe villages that start school behind their Thai peers. We provide a safe, extended family atmosphere and daily tutoring to help them learn Thai and catch up in all their other subjects. These young women made it through high school and have been accepted to college. One at a major university in the capital, Bangkok, and four at a college in Chiang Mai or Lampang. They will be the first in their families to attend college and break the cycle of poverty of their parents, farmers in the mountains. Akanit, is enrolled to become a Social Worker at Thammasat University and Meme is studying Public Policy at Chiang Mai Rajabhat University. New started in 2015 and is studying to work in the tourist industry. She is studying Korean and dreams of traveling there someday. They all come back on school breaks to encourage other students and help their communities. Faa ("Sky") just started at Maejo University in Public Administration and Earn starts Environmental Sciences at Rajabhat in Lampang, this August.  We have eight more girls graduating next March.  Please help us build a fund to get them through university so they can give back to Warm Heart and their communities.
Thank you!
