Background

Rajapachanukroh 50 School is the school for disadvantage and poor children in country side of Khon Kaen ,Thailand.

The school is under the royal foundation offer education, food and accommodation for the children that have no parents, the children from the poor family, and the children from very remote area. They can come and stay at the school from the primary (7 years) to high school (18 years). They are staying at the school with the teacher, so we are offer them not only education but also life and opportunities.

Give primary Thai students have the big chance to communication with the foreigner. Destroy shyness from them and let them used to foreigner even now not only English is important to be in the world. Education camp is the most wanted from Thai people when thinking of cultural diversity. After many camps have done in the primary schools. The students are getting use to with the foreigners and some dare to speak out. We need to keep continuing their chance to meet and share with international volunteers as their improvement. We hope one day the students from the rural area will have more confident to speak English and face to foreigners, also more understanding in cultural diversity similar as the students in the big city. No more knowledge gap!
