Partners: DEPDC (Development and Education Program for Daughters and Communities in the Great Mekong Sub region)
Project 1 – ‘In Country’. The first ‘In Country’ project where the coordinator for the DEPDC/GMS was a past student that Luke used to teach in Thailand. 350 SchoolBags were put together for children who the DEPDC support in 6 different centres and 65 resource packs (minus the rucksack, lunchbox and water bottle) were given to novice monks. The DEPDC/GMS is a non-profit community based NGO working in Thailand on the prevention side of the trafficking of women and children into the sex industry or other exploitative child labour situations.
Project 2 – ‘In Country’. Coordinated once again by the DEPDC/GMS, phase II put together 933 SchoolBags for children supported by other organisation based throughout Thailand. These SchoolBags were blue in colour as red is the party political colour of the ousted Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawat!
