Journey to Warm Heart
With beautiful eyes and a tiny laugh, Cafe comes from the Akha village of Arye.
Arye is too far from the nearest school for children to attend.
The family has two young boys who suffer from hemophilia. As poor farmers, Cafe’s parents do not have the income to pay medical bills and support their six children.
The parents asked Warm Heart to take Cafe and her sisters Attitiya and Pimpisaa during the school months. Cafe and her sisters are now members of the core “family” of kids who live at Warm Heart year around.
When she arrived Cafe spoke only Akha. As Cafe’s comfort level at Warm Heart has increased, so has her knowledge of Thai – and in 2014 she got perfect grades at school!
Her favorite activities are drawing and painting. She says drawing is her own special talent.
Her favorite color is pink.
She loves dogs, especially the Warm Heart dogs Pompooi and Mickey.
At school she prefers Thai class above all else. She very much looks up to her teachers and the House Mothers at Warm Heart.
She thinks she will be a teacher when she grows up.
