We believe every child should be entitled to an opportunity of quality education. Generally speaking, children in Thailand are taught to memorize and repeat, rather than learning problem-solving skills and having inventory ideas. Here at the Foundation, we encourage and challenge students to go beyond memorization and instead to independently analyze and understand issues, while discovering how to methodically and efficiently resolve them. Simply speaking, the idea of the project is to provide an opportunity for underprivileged children to develop analytical skills, and to learn the English language at the same time. One of the many attributes that makes our education method unique, is this dual purpose curriculum. Teaching analytical thinking skills is the heart of our organization, and teaching the English language is the channel through which we will achieve it.
The Peace and Happiness Foundation runs on a dream to provide education in the English language to children of Thailand, beginning from the first grade of primary school. Our founder, Ms. Natasha Stewart, with the inspiration from the late King Bhumibol of Thailand, aims to help the poor and underprivileged children in Thailand develop their analytical skill and English ability by bringing the teaching method of international schools into the Thai schools for the poor. In the meantime, we connect with around ten schools in northern Thailand (in the Provinces of Chiang Rai and Nan), reaching out approximately a hundred students aging 7-8.
