Give an Opportunity to abused, abandoned and trafficked children
EarthCare: Learning, Discovery, Awareness
In 2007 there were 1.5 million reported cases of abuse of children in Thailand. The location of our project, Buriram Province, is a primary source of trafficked children and women, and domestic violence and child abuse are common.
EarthCare, based in Northern Thailand, is a community based project that combines awareness of environmental responsibility and conservation, understanding of community issues and self-development and discovery. EarthCare welcomes you into a hill tribe community to engage and exchange about their way of life and natural environment
We are seeking participating schools, university and community-service groups to fund and build housing for children rescued from abuse, abandonment and trafficking. This project is in partnership with Opportunity Foundation under the supervision of the Thai Ministry of Social Services. Each house costs approximately two million Thai Baht ($60,000 USD) so all contributions are greatly appreciated.
EarthCare is about learning, discovery and awareness. Learning activities include field studies, reforestation, water conservation, ethnic hilltribe cultures and community development. This is complemented by outdoor activities and visits to local hilltribe villages.
Northern Thailand: Outdoor Education Centre Flexible enough to complement any schoolâ€™s curriculum this outdoor education program introduces students to new environments, allowing them to critically assess their role in creating a better world.
