International ProjectsThe Rose Education Foundation Supports The Work Of Some Excellent International Projects
Rahab Ministries in Bangkok Thailand
This is a project to help young girls caught in the prostitution trap by giving them training in traditional Thai massage, beauty and hairdressing. They are also working to combat this problem at the source through working in the northern villages. The main problem is in providing school meals. We will aim to provide 30 children with free school meals throughout the term of their schooling. The cost of this is £250 per child per year.

The Pattaya Orphanage
Maurice Dimmock has spent much time in Thailand and came into contact with the Pattaya Orphanage a number of years ago. Since this time the Pattaya Orphanage, the staff and especially the children have drawn Maurice, and other family members back time and again.
The Orphanage began life in 1972 in response, initially, to a single abandoned child found at the doors of St. Nikolaus Church. The orphanage now cares for over 160 orphans ranging from new born’s up to university age. The orphanage supports children right through education into getting jobs and living independent lives.
Recently The Rose Education was able to provide funding to build a rain cover, allowing the children to pass from one building to the next during the torrential downpours without getting a soaking.

The Thai 12 Trip
Recently a group of young people and their leaders took a trip to visit the projects that the Rose Education Foundation support in Thailand. The group raised all their own funds through many activities and went out in the summer of 2012.
They spent time visiting the Rahab Centre and also The Pattaya Orphanage where they spent time playing and interacting with the children there.
