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...

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...

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....

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...

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...

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...

Chairs for the homework rooms

Being able to sit well while doing your homework is important. Many broken down chairs from the homework rooms have been fixed over and over, but unfortunately we cannot keep doing that and we will have to buy new ones.  The chairs are very often used because the girls do homework every day. We need...

Modern technology

We live in the digital age which has a great affect on our lives. We use the technologies at work, at home, at school and also for social contacts, otherwise we will miss much. These technologies demand financial investments for all of us, including Baan Phak Phing. Our present computers have become slower and need...

A new car

Baan Phak Phing is located quite a distance out of town and public transport here is not as good as it is in The Netherlands. Therefore, we drive the girls to school every day ourselves. Each of the family homes has its own car, in which up to 12-14 persons can be transported. Besides driving...

New Desks

We have several desks that need to be replaced because some of them are almost literally falling apart. We need new desks for 3 staff offices as well as desks for the girls on which to put the computers they use for homework. We need a total of 10 new desks. Each desk costs 170...
