Gift Them An Education

Make your Christmas gift their New Year’s resolution!

 Our goal this holiday season is to raise enough money to sponsor a teacher for 2018. This teacher will interact with our 1,200 students and encourage them to succeed in the coming years!

The cost of hiring a qualified English Teacher is £12,000 (about 500,000 THB) per year. This covers a full year's salary, visa and work permit fees.

By contributing to our campaign you are providing our students with a practical and interactive English language education that goes beyond the classroom and supports their daily lives and make a huge difference in their employability and prospects for a secure future. It is only through the generous support of people like you that we are able to continue our work with this amazing community.
