The kids. They are the reason behind why I do what I do everyday. They are my purpose for being in Thailand. Let me tell you about our kids. They are almost all refugees. Most are minorities. All come from the poorest of the poor. All are at extreme risk of being trafficked (yes even the boys). Some cannot even write their names in their native language.
And yet all love learning. All greet us with smilies everyday. Most are extremely optimistic about their futures and their lives. All this from kids from the bottom-most rung of society. All this from kids who, at least from the outside, would seem to be without hope, and with little chance of escaping their difficult circumstances. They are my constant example of love, hope, and positivity!
Our entire Class.
Thanks to everyone for your support and for making this dream possible!
