Watfawiainginn provides housing and education for children from impoverished families, who are unable to feed them or send them to school, and orphans who have no family to take care for them. Many attending the school are also children whose parents work as day laborers and don’t have time to take care of them. All are originally from Shan State, from areas without a formal educational system, areas which have witnessed long-standing conflict. If caught by Burmese soldiers, they risk abuse, including torture and forced labor, including as army porters or human minesweepers. Other children have been taken away from their families by other armed groups, often forced to become child soldiers.
The school provides a sanctuary where children can pursue a basic education and a better future.
Life at the School: Although the school is a haven from the turmoil in their original homelands, life is not easy. The children live at the school, sleeping together in one narrow bedroom. Breakfast usually consists of curry, usually shared between students, who receive two meals a day. They have to perform their own chores, washing their own laundry, doing their dishes, cooking, cleaning. The children, almost all of whom are very young, are forced to grow up quickly, without the adequate clothing or blankets against the cold, school supplies, toys, food, the care of their parents. And, like other undocumented migrants in Thailand, they are not covered by the state’s universal health program. When the children are sick, they are cared for informally at the monastery, using medicines purchased from local general stores (there are no dedicated pharmacies or pharmacists in the area). More severely ill children are sent to the local clinic or hospital, which often requires payment for services. Specialized cares, such as surgeries, have to be done in Chiang Mai city, and the costs are often prohibitive.
We would like to set up a fund dedicated solely for medical care for the students, especially to help cover expenses of those more severely ill, who need care in a hospital.
- To provide students get better medical
care, in a more timely fashion.
- To help with supplemental nutrition, such as
milk, when they sick, to help speed recovery.
- To purchase associated medical supplies (such as dressings, for children needing surgery)
- To defray travel expenses of students needing
referral to hospitals.
Project management team:
We are teachers who are also people who have lived a life of hunger for education, just like the children and orphans on the Thai-Burma border. We were motivated to become teachers because we wanted to do a better job of fulfilling what children need; we really want to provide good health care and develop these children to improve their futures.

Words deeply in heart
My life with teaching can be fun by my lovely students who work so hard in their lessons. They can make me smile by their pretty face (look deeply so sad to be away from their parents). They can make me laugh by their question which they want try to learn things which is not in lessons, for example about out side the world and other things.
I have never thought to be a teacher. When I was young, I have not dreamt to teach. However, after I have graduated the sixth SSSNY’s Social Justice and Education program in 2006. I became a teacher and teach the children (impoverished children and orphans).
After I have been teaching, I really fond of teaching and I realized that I love this job so much. Do you want to know why? I teach the children, I have learnt lots of new things from their difficult lives and it makes me feel sad, so sorry for them and want to find the way to help them. I can understand how suffer they have faced with no parents care or for someone parents died already. Therefore, I want to take care, look after them as their parents do. They need lots and lots of care. They are too young and unsuitable to be apart with their parents. They are under 13 years old. Some of them are orphans, their parents died since they were about 5, 6 or 9 years old.
The job of a teacher is not a simple or easy job, it hard, but it fun and glad to do. I feel happy because I think that I can help them, can see them smile. I can be tired for them to have good things. I really want them to be good. I don’t mind a few baht of my salary. Three thousand baht per month, if for someone, can’t survive. For me, I work all days, even the holidays. Nobody forces me to do, but it has ordered deeply from my mind. The importance is I can spend my time wisely to help my community or for people.
I understand my childhood well, I was away from parent. I faced a lot of difficulties. I was hunger, missed home, and wanted love from parents. I never got (toys) which I wanted. It was very sad to be away from parents in childhood. Therefore, I love children and want them to have good education, for them to have a good life in the future. The most thing I want to do is don’t want them to feel like when I was young. I will be a good teacher and try to do good things for my lovely students…
ป้ายกำกับ: My wonderful students
Child can have fun in many places. Park is one of
the places which children love to go so much.
Do you remember your childhood's time? When you were young, did you lazy to go to school? Can you compare your present time happiness with your childhood's happiness time? For me, I didn't have time in the big park.
This is a little Shan girl, so pretty on
her Shan National dress with a sword.
I just remembered that I went to the jungle
with my father, he gathered bamboo shoot and
I followed him. That was a place where
my father took me to. The other things which I
remember was one day I didn't want to go to
school and my mom told me to go to school with
having stick in her hand behind me. How was
stupid I did that time? But it was only one time
I did like that. When I was 9 years old, I worked
hard in my lessons so much, and wanted to go to
school. Unfortunately, I couldn't go to school in
another village, because with two things, it was
far to go and my parents found a bit hard,
no money to send me to. At last I had a chance
to go to an orphanage in somewhere in Thailand.
This video is the teacher, Noom Hkurh tried to provide his students to have a wonderful time. In the whole days of his students' lives are apart from parents and lack of parents taking care. Therefore, Noom Hkurh he loves his students so much and taking care them seriously. He loves his students as his own chidren. He is not just teaching in the school time, he plays with them, take care and take to hospital when they sick.
Mother's Day in Thailand is on 12th Oct every year. Noom Hkurh held this ceremony for his students, with the reasons are want students to regard parents deeply in mind and always remember them, just think that I will be good in lessons for parents, I will be a good child for my mom. He wanted his students to have the idea of "I love my parents, therefore I should not make myself to be bad and let my parents sad. Even though, I am away from my parents, but I love them and they love me, I will try to be a good child for my parents."
Children today are the leaders tomrrow!
Where there's a will, there a way.
Time an tide wait for no man.
Still water runs deep.
Trust neither an unknow road nor an unknow person.
Eat to live; not live to eat.
Self-done is soon done.
