last several years Amicus has focused most of its efforts
supporting education projects in the province of Isan, the very
most neglected part of Thailand.
Dreaming of a better
education and future.
Thai children are
pictured here filled with hopeful anticipation of
their new library and community educational center. Unlike in our
western nations where we never think twice about whether a school
or library exists somewhere in our neighborhood, the children of
Isan wake in the morning with no such guarantee. With so little to
look forward to, the prospect of a new
modern learning facility is very exciting for these children.
From the ground
Titlar Saenguthai and his older brother, along with their family, have
been closely involved with the Nong Boat School for generations. The
Saenguthai brothers were in charge of the crew and volunteers who helped to
build the new library and community education center. It was a great
privilege to be able to participate and share in the excitement of this
community coming together and building their new education facility.
Village workers share their
enthusiasm as they move towards completing their new community
