About this project

Jaan and Ganda come from remote hill tribe villages, from ethnic groups living on the margins of Thai society.  Jaan's mother died and her father is in and out of jail, trying to make a living in the drug trade.  Ganda's father died and her mother is working hard to keep her girls in school but does not make enough to support them.  In these villages, girls have become more valuable than boys as they are sent to work in the sex trades.  Education makes the girls more valuable in business and other professional careers.  This is the economic alternative that can keep girls in school.   
The Warm Heart Foundation provides a safe, nurturing environment so the girls can graduate from high school and go on to college.  This costs more and more as they succeed in finishing 6th grade, then 9th grade, and then high school.  We take girls starting in kindergarten and support them through high school.  Right now we have 30 girls, ages 5 to 18.  Eight of them are not funded.
