Why we need your support

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

At Ban Rom Sai the cost of living for each child amounts to approximately US$4,940 per year.
(calculated at 1 baht = 0.038US$)

Annual food cost per child: US$1,254
Annual medical costs: US$760
Annual education cost: US$2,926 (including library and education project costs)
            TOTAL COST = US$4,940

(The above costs do not include basic, yet necessary, operational costs such as manpower, transportation or utilities.)

NB: Additionally, there is approximately US$4,180 in annual costs for each child (amounting to US$125,400 for 30 children) for anti-viral medicines. Currently the bulk of these anti-viral medicine 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.

These children will never be able to leave Ban Rom Sai. 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.

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.
