Praew, Age 14, Akha Hill Tribe

Praew and her brother Tawachai come from Arye, an Akha village in the mountains too far from any schools to attend. Their parents are farmers of corn, cherries, rice, and coffee.

Initially, Praew went to a boarding school in Chiang Rai but when the boarding and food became too expensive for her parents, they asked Warm Heart to accept their children.

She continues to be a good student, maintaining over a 3.2 GPA.

Grateful for the opportunity she had to continue her education, Praew aspires to go on to university in Chiang Mai or Bangkok.

At this point in her life she is interested in becoming a Tour Guide.
