Archawin Saelee

Suggested Donation: $20.00

Age: 9 years old
Gender: Boy
Country: Thailand

Archawin is a fun and sweet little boy. He has one older brother and lives with his family in a rural area of northern Thailand. Archawin’s parents are farmers with a sixth grade education. They raise their crops on land rented from the government. Poor weather conditions and farming techniques have a negative impact on their economic condition. They need help to provide for Archawin’s education and other needs. Your sponsorship will be a great blessing to Archawin, who desires to become a teacher. Thank you!

Thailand is a predominantly Buddhist country, and many people also believe in the spiritual realm. Children from poor families go to state-run schools where teaching is sub-standard. Their parents normally have little education and cannot be relied upon to help them.  School children seldom reach the ninth grade and most end up working in family farms. Since the people have very low or no education, they lack basic knowledge of life skills like personal hygiene, household management, family planning and balancing budgets.
