Tasanai, I and a friend, Mike, attended the ribbon cutting dedication of the new dormitory for boys at the School for Life, on the Suan Suoi Fha Sai (clear skies over beautiful garden) Farm deep inside a royal forest in the Doi Saket Mountains. Our Condo held a fund raising party on the 15th floor last Dec and raised over 1 Million Baht so they could build the new dorm.
I didn’t get any pictures of the grounds – we will go back to present the school with copies of the pictures we took and then I will get better images of the site. It is much larger than I thought. I am going to offer to take more images, especially of the children, if they want, so each can have their own picture.
Here are some random shots of the children and the afternoon:
Don’t your heart go out to these kids – Here are some dedication images
Then we were treated to Drum and Dancing by the children:
The dedication by the monks:
And finally a Soccer game with the Farangs and school teams:
Then I ran out of memory – more games followed, cucumber swing and hit the ball – wish I had gotten shots of this – It was great fun, and the chili, coke and power game – I won’t try to explain these – leave that for your imagination.
We had a great day and will go back again –
They are looking for Sponsors for the children and I will post another time on how and what it involves –
hope you can help.
