Facilitating education enrolment
Each year One Sky helps over 100 children from poor families enrol in school.
We facilitate enrolment by:
Raising awareness about children’s rights to education in Thailand (e.g. click here to see a recent informational poster)
Providing translation services and enrolment advice, to assist children through the enrolment process
Providing financial support to help children go to school.
We work to minimise dropout through:
Referrals from local schools, allowing us to return children at risk of dropout to education. In 2014 we received 65 such referrals, with 50 of these children returned to education.
Research into education dropout across all 14 primary schools in Nonglu, Sangkhlaburi, to be used as the basis for designing remedial programmes.
Widening rural education access
We provide a teacher three days per week for a small school on a remote Sangkhlaburi plantation. We are currently working with the village leader and local education authority to find a more permanent education solution for children living on this plantation.
