Creating Learning Environments and Classrooms
Building Futures Thailand does just that – it builds schools and libraries for kids who do not have such essentials.
The organization started in the aftermath of the tsunami that ravished to west coast of Thailand.
Founder Kris Edwards asked herself what she could do to help, and standing in the ruin of a school flattened by the great wave, she decided that she would rebuild schools.
By 2014, the job was done, but rather than quit, she looked further afield and found Warm Heart. No tsunami destroyed the educational infrastructure of Phrao; we never had much to start with.
By November, Building Futures Thailand had constructed Barb’s Place, a large community education center and public access computer lab serving all of Phrao – and named for Kris’ mom, Barbara, a dedicated teacher.
