Why we need your support

Ban Rom Sai believes in independence, as a means to support the growth of the children.

Annual operating cost of Ban Rom Sai is approximately as follows:
(Fiscal year 2017-2018/ calculated at the rate of 1 Baht = 3.44JPY)

Education cost: 1,000,000JPY
Daily living cost: 10,070,000JPY (includes salaries for nurses and kitchen staff.)
Medical costs: 70,000JPY
Other costs: 8,430,000JPY (includes utilities, repairs and maintenance, salaries for administrative staff, and etc..)
            TOTAL : 19,570,000JPY

Additionally, there is approximately 8,000THB-20,000THB/month/child for those taking anti-viral medication. Currently the bulk of these costs are covered through the assistance of the international NGO, Oxfam. However, it is unclear how long we can rely on this assistance.

The orphanage adopted a new anti-viral regimen in 2002 and children are growing up healthy under this regimen. Although the goal of Ban Rom Sai is for as many children as possible to become independent and become active members of society, for some children this will unfortunately not be an option. Some of the children have suffered from negative side-effects from the drugs and others are suffering from mental handicaps.

To be able to continue to support these children as they reach adulthood, Ban Rom Sai is developing projects on-site, where these children could eventually work and earn a living. One of these projects is the hoshihana village guest house. Other projects include sewing and handicrafts, as well as the farm project.
NB: Operation of these projects are fully supported by NPO Banromsai Japan and Banromsai (Thailand) Co., Ltd..

For other children, there is the growing cost of education. Some of the children are able and want to further their education and attend universities, technical colleges, or vocational schools. Tuition for such further education is more expensive than primary and secondary education. This means that we need to raise more funds to be able to support the ambition of these children.
