Some students are learning online at their homes but they don’t have the basic tools they need to learn
The school says they need mobile phones and computers to help their students learn online.
The director of the Pattaya School for the Blind, Chit Suknoo, told Thai media that his school is suffering during the Covid situation, just as other charities are suffering. He adds that they have substantially less donated food and other necessary items prior to the beginning of last year”.
Chit says the school has been trying to compensate for the lack of donations by doing live streaming every Sunday with entertaining shows as well as selling artisanal products made by the children.
However, Chit says the school has had to regretfully lay off staff to reduce overhead. Additionally, even though schools must be taught online in Pattaya, some students still have to remain at Chit’s school.
“We need some cash, food and used mobile phones or computers. Some students are learning online at their homes but they don’t have the basic tools they need to learn”, says Chit.
The director pleaded with the public to provide any help they can.
