Kate's Project Trust works in the slum areas of Pattaya in Thailand and since its inception in 2006 has helped hundreds of children attend school and also improved living conditions for many families.

REGISTERED WITH THE CHARITY COMMISSION FOR NORTHERN IRELAND NIC 103353

Although a small organization, Kate's Project has big aspirations and has made a great impact on the scattered communities across the city of Pattaya.BABY SUPPLIES GIVEN TO MOST NEEDY MOTHERS AS MANY ARE MALNOURISHED

By far the most important aim of the Trust is to offer education to the poorest of families, where schooling is seen as an expensive and unachievable luxury. To date some 250 children attend various schools in the region and as well as school fees, the Project also funds a daily lunch and of course a school uniform and any teaching materials that are needed.

This website highlights the many positive developments achieved so far and the drive for even further help to more families.

LIVING UNDER A TREE / FEB 2016

Many of the families supported by Kate's Project Trust live in very basic simple houses, but in accommodation that very much suits their "nomadic" lifestyle. Parents go where the work is and very often this means several moves in the year. The children have some kind of stability in that we support them by paying school fees and providing a school uniform. Along with other support groups within Pattaya we offer a much needed helping hand in what are very challenging circumstances.

Take a look at our page which gives you some indication as to the costs involved in supporting a child through their education .

FUNDRAISING NIGHT / JAN 2016

A highly successful charity fundraising night for Kate's Project at the Tequila Sunrise beachside restaurant in Mae Pim, Thailand with Barry Upton providing the entertainment and KayJay, assisted by Barry's grandson collecting up the 1 to 5,000 baht donations as he played requests for money (and quite a few never attempted before). Big thank you to the mainly Swedish audience who gave so generously. Estimated total around 60,000 baht. This will help bring joy with food etc.. to many poor familes.

FOOD DROP/ MAY 2015

The monthly food drop to the most vulnerable families continues. This vital part of Kate's Project Trust provides basic essential foods to families who would otherwise grow hungry. These foods (rice, noodles, oil, canned fish) are provided by the PILC and also "Kids in Pattaya". We thank them for their continued support in this area.

 

TOYS FROM THE DUMP /SEPTEMBER 2014

Many of the families living in the slum areas often scavage through the bins and refuse dumps for plastic and other items which can be re-used or recycled. Plastic cartons and bags and all the items people simply throw away. Like children the world over, toys are a welcome distraction, but even more so with the children who live in the poorest conditions in Pattaya's Slum.

In this picture the little boy is so happy to be playing with broken colourful toys. Play is afterall an important part of growing up.

VISITING THE CENTRE OF HOPE/ AUGUST 2014

The small office and front porch of The Centre of Hope are a welcome haven to the families who come to discuss any problems or requests to Noi, Kate's Project co-ordinator in Pattaya. The children scurry for the books and read through the colourful pages with interest.
