We survive and thrive on donations from around the world. Our budget has the following three sections:
Children’s care budget is provided for by each individual child having a sponsor. We live a simple life and try to be realistic with our budget. Currently we request 8000 baht per child per year. Costs include food @ 120 baht per week, school fees, bus costs to and from school, medical expenses, and birthday/Christmas gifts. The annual budget is 400,000 baht.
Medical care comes most often as medical supplies from other medical institutions, free medical consultants, donated equipment and government support from emergency transportation. The annual budget is valued 350,000 baht.
Development Projects include funds for materials, donated time from builders and work crews as well as planning time and efforts by expertise. The projects are undertaken in October and April each year as these are when the children home from school. If they work it, they have a sense of ownership, and belonging.
