Basic education in Thailand is free of charge, but it entails certain expenses described above.
Old grandparents or parents who are in poor health are struggle to find and secure a steady income.
Families are hardly making ends meet, therefore AIDS Care’s contributions make it possible for the children to attend school and get at least a basic education. This makes it possible for the children to get a diploma, find a decent job and help their families in the future.
Many children have lost both their mother and father and live with their grandparents. They therefore “inherit” the responsibility to financially support their grandparents.
With at least basic education we help these children to break the vicious cycle of HIV/AIDS. They now can define their future themselves instead of being victims of their circumstances.
