Group for Children
What and If. Two very powerful words.
When Khun Adun learned that his students were coming to school hungry, he asked, “What if ?” What if students could be fed 3 meals a day?
But families simply didn’t have enough money. Migrant parents were working for between $6-$8 a day (well below Thailand’s minimum wage of $10/day).
Adun persisted. What if students’ development weren’t hampered by nutrition? And what if parents could get ahead of unexpected expenses like hospital bills?
What if there were a way to give hard-working migrant parents a simple cushion, a buffer?
These were the kind of questions that started a small but wildly successful enterprise—women’s savings groups.
Surprisingly, the “success” of these groups wasn’t only financial. It led to other positive things no one could have predicted.
