Our home has twenty-eight children with an additional two living in their village whose education we support through The Education Program (TEP). At home, the children speak Lahu and Akha to their tribesmen, but Thai is spoken across tribes. Most of our children are Christian, with several Buddhist exceptions, both religions being accepted.

Our Home: Situated on the outskirts of Chiang Rai town, our home enjoys the quiet of being at the end of the road, but is still close to town. We back up to a forest where the children like to play. Our neighbors are friendly, and own a candy store that our children often visit. We have a boy's and girl's dorm, each with a few separate rooms, joined by a common area, where we eat our meals, and the children do their homework.

Working towards self-sufficiency, the volunteers here have recently started a garden which we hope will reduce food costs, teach the kids about agriculture, and ensure they get their vitamins. The house mothers and the children are responsible for these efforts.
