Journey to Warm Heart
Attitiya is a stunning young girl who hails from the Akha mountain village of Arye.
Arye is too far from the nearest school for children to attend, and Attitiya’s family has two young boys who suffer from hemophilia. As mountain farmers, her parents do not have the income to pay medical bills and support their six children.
The parents asked Warm Heart to take Attitiya and her little sisters Cafe and Pimpisaa.
When Attitiya arrived she was very reserved and knew almost no Thai.
Attitiya and her sisters are now members of the core “family” of kids who live at Warm Heart year around.
Attitiya’s initial reserve has dwindled. Today, she can be seen running around Warm Heart’s campus with her many friends.
She says her favorite part of living at the Children’s Homes is having supportive House Mothers.
One of Attitiya’s hobbies is drawing, but she is also Warm Heart’s best athlete, winning every gold metal in her class at Sports Day.
Her favorite subjects are art and Thai. Her Thai has improved immensely and she is especially proud of her excellent handwriting.
Attitiya admires her school teachers and hopes to one day become a teacher herself.
