YEP: Youth Education Programme
Through the Youth Education Programme, youths across Thailand will be given a clear pathway to a better life for both themselves and their families. YEP will support the family to enable their children to access a wide range of vocational educational opportunities. This ranges from hairdressing school, auto mechanic apprenticeships, restaurant training and many others, without having to move away from their families.
YEP will give them excellent chances of securing employment, and allow them to build up great careers for themselves, enabling them to better support their families.
By donating £26 per month, you will enable a young person to enter further education and support their family with:
- Family support (i.e. dry food)
- Support to access vocational education centres or training
- Career guidance and mental health counselling
SEED: Safe, Equal & Enabling for Children with Disabilities
38% of children with disabilities never go to school (UNICEF Thailand).
Through the SEED programme, children with disabilities and their families will be able to attend school, participate fully in society and lead a dignified and productive life. SEED will support children with disabilities by allowing their parents to work without being forced to leave their children alone at home. Teachers will also be provided with further training in how to better support children with disabilities. This, in conjunction with physiotherapy to lessen their symptoms, will give the children the ability to live a more fulfilling life.
By donating £26 per month, you will support a family with:
- Livelihood support; (i.e. dry food)
- Parents’ support network
- Rehabilitation training & Physiotherapy
- Teacher training to support children with disabilities and children with special educational needs
