Thailand Education Savings
In three urban slums of Bangkok, the Thailand Faith and Music Foundation (a member of the Thailand Covenant Church) will be facilitating a project to help young people save for their own education through recycling. Youth will be sorting and selling recycling and then their earnings will be matched through this project.
Most children in these communities are only able to finish sixth grade and cannot continue on because they are unable to purchase books, supplies and uniforms. These savings funds will allow children to continue in their education. A secondary benefit is teaching children creation care and helping them to learn the value of recycling.
