    Local schools are also in need of some larger items, such as furniture, electronic equipment, and playground equipment. These items can be purchased locally. If you would like to contribute for these items or buy them in Chiang Mai, please contact us spicywildpumpkin@gmail.com.

    Project #1

    The Baan Mai Sa Wan, KhunPoey, Mae Sa Pok schools serve over 100 children from ages 2 through 12 years old.

    The goal of Project One is to teach English to children from ages 2 through 5 years old in Khunpoey Village.

    Another goal of this project is to help the kids learn how to live more sufficiently. We hope to educate the children about reusing and recycling resources and starting a veggie plot.

    Project #2

    The Baan Mai Sa Wan, KhunPoey, Mae Sa Pok schools serve over 100 children from ages 2 through 12 years old.

    The goal of Project Two is to teach English to about 20 kindergarten students in a Karen Village (Mae Sa Pok Village).

    Project #3

    The Baan Mai Sa Wan, KhunPoey, Mae Sa Pok schools serve over 100 children from ages 2 through 12 years old.

    The goal of Project Three is to teach English to children in a Karen Village (Baan Mai Sa Wan) in Doi Inthanon National Park.

    This project began in 2008 to help children from ages 5 through 12 years old. Currently, there are 35 students being taught by Samart’s nephew, Eakchai.

    Initiatives Supported

    All the needs are current as of September 16, 2021
    Note: Location is approximated. If you see a lodging that is misplaced or missing, please contact us .

    Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them. If you prefer, you may reach out directly to them to inquire about items which may be available for purchase locally. Arranging visits to community projects is beyond the scope of our mission. If you wish to visit a project, contact the participant and they can let you know what is possible.

    Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
    • Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
    • The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.

    Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
