Ongoing Projects

On this page we will keep you informed of ongoing projects. These are special goals that are necessary to run Baan Phak Phing as a whole, in addition to the basic necessities of life for the girls. This concerns things such as; material items for maintenance work or means of transport, safety, trips, special activities, technical items such as computers, printers, network, internet, staff costs, a little extra for the girls, etc.
Scroll further down to can see which project you would like to contribute to.

Computers for homework

Doing homework may not be the children’s favourite activity, but it has to be done. A lot of homework, especially tasks from high school and college, needs to be done on a computer. Having 10 children in a house means that they often have to wait for each other when there are only two or three computers. An additional problem is that some computers need to be replaced. Therefore we would like to switch to another system, Chromebooks. These are not only less expensive but also easier in maintenance. This is quite new for Baan Phak Phing, but our IT specialist has used them before on a large scale and so we are confident that this is a good solution. We would like to purchase fifteen Chromebooks.

The costs per Chromebook, including licence, are 420 USD which is 6. 300 USD in total.

Rice cookers

In Thailand it is quite common to eat rice three times a day, literally, for breakfast, lunch and dinner. This means cooking rice several times a day every day. The rice cookers are working overtime and occasionally they break down. Sometimes they can be fixed in a cheap and simple way, but sometimes replacement is inevitable. Therefore we would like to buy new rice cookers for the three family houses and the kitchen for the girls who are learning to live independently.

A new rice cooker costs 45 USD which is 180 USD in total

Television stands

Each house has a television cabinet in the living room. Unfortunately, the wooden, veneer furniture is in a bad state due to old age and the influence of the weather (humidity, heat, and drought). They are real eyesores, hard to clean and some are almost falling apart, and so we would like to replace them. In total we need four new television cabinets, for the three family houses and for the living room in the house for independent living.

A new television cabinet costs about 180 USD x 4 units is a total of 720 USD

New Closets

Each of the girls has their own closet where they keep their clothes and personal items. Right now quite a few of them are getting old to the point of falling apart. Repairing or restoring won’t work anymore because we’ve had to do that too many times already. Will you help us replace them?

1 closet costs 160 USD and we need a total of 30 new closets so we need a total of 4800 USD.

Ice cream for the girls

Here in Thailand, the temperature often rises above 30 degrees and sometimes even above 40 degrees centigrade. Everybody takes it as easy as possible then; people stay inside and drink a lot of water to stay hydrated and cool down. Wouldn’t it be great for the girls to eat an ice cream every once and a while with these temperatures? Luckily, this is possible; every day an ice cream vendor passes by with his motorbike and sidecar. He plays a tune when he is close to our houses to let us know he is coming. Thinking of the ice creams made the girls’ mouths water. Who wouldn’t like a refreshing ice cream when it’s so hot outside? Nobody, right?

Do you want to buy an ice cream for the girls? We could give them one starting 1.20 US Dollar. In each of the three family houses we can have up to 10 girls.

How can we survive without the ‘mothers’?

The girls in Baan Phak Phing would not be able to live with us if we did not employ ‘mothers’ who take care of them. The mothers offer the girls kindness, love and security. They teach the girls how to cook, wash, clean and take care of themselves.  In order to make the family houses function well and provide the best care there are four mothers in every house. They work in shifts as the girls need 24-hour care. Additionally, we employ a psychologist and an office worker and so the entire staff consists of 14 women. These women are not volunteers, they are permanent staff with a salary and a family and relatives of their own to take care of. The average pay of the women employed by us is around $ 450 per person per month. This means that we spend $ 450 x 14 mothers = $ 6.300 on salaries for the mothers each month.

Would you like to help us with these costs by a monthly contribution? That way you help guarantee proper and loving care for the girls.
