Sister Joan’s annual Education Project benefits children and
young adults in Klong Toey and other slum communities in Bangkok
who come from a financially disadvantaged background, providing
the ability for them to attend school or university. Without this
assistance, it is unlikely they would be able to gain an education.
beneficiaries of the Education Project are Thai students between
the ages of 3 (starting pre-school) and 22 (attending university)
who reside in Klong Toey and other slum communities in Bangkok.
The majority of the students assisted through the Education Project
are at primary or lower secondary school.
2007 Education Project conducted in April and May this year provided
school uniforms, shoes, socks and bags for 602 underprivileged Thai
students at an average cost per student of Baht 685 (approx A$24).
This excludes some late students who also received assistance.
and the Australian Embassy in Bangkok who donated 100,000 baht
from their Discretionary Fund towards this year's Education Project.
Australian-New Zealand Women's Group (ANZWG) who also donated
remaining funds for this year's Education Project were provided
by donations from supporters of Sister Joan's Presentation Slums
