“ChuayDek - Raising greener generations” is a small nonprofit organization that aims to improve the lives, level of education and environmental knowledge of children in selected schools in Thailand.
Our aim is that underprivileged children have access to nutritious food, appropriate for them to study and grow, and have access to education for a better-off present and a future in which they can sustain themselves in a healthy environment. We hope to contribute to a stronger and greener generation, the generation of kids who will become responsible adults, respecting each other and using the environment's resources in a sustainable way.
The need of help of these children together with the proactiveness and the honesty of the teachers convinced a group of friends to start supporting the Buddha Kasettra School on September 2010 through the foundation of the ChuayDek group.
ChuayDek - Raising Greener Generation non-profit was registered in Italy in May 2012 (registration code/tax code: 97697160584) and it is helped by good will people in Italy and in Thailand.
ChuayDek means "help the kids" in Thai language. As it is suggested by it's simple straight-forward name, ChuayDek is a very transparent association. It is a voluntary contribution made up of individuals who care about children, their improved conditions, their access to food and education and their environment. All the work undertaken is fully and only on a voluntary basis. Funds are collected through a collaborative effort and fully assigned to respond to the needs of the identified school and kids.
ChuayDek supports only one school at time to maximize the efforts and resources, and to be able to bring not only financial support and knowledge, but also care and affection to the children. Working with only one school at time also allows us to properly monitor the progress of the work and the use of donations, to plan activities with them and to help them become self-sufficient. Selected schools respond to the criteria of transparency and pro-activity: school formed of kids coming from low-income families lacking of opportunities or with difficult access to education facilities. Some children are potentially at risk of falling into the trap of drugs, prostitution or begging.
