  • supporting a learning centre for Morgan children in the Surin Islands, Phang Nga;
  • providing high-quality English language education for more than one thousand disadvantaged children in Phuket;
  • helping improve science and maths education in Chaiyaphum; and
  • sponsoring a five-day workshop in Bangkok on leadership and human rights for marginalised women and girls.
