Country:

Cambodia

Missioner Responsible:

Fr. Kevin M. Conroy, M.M.

This project meets the needs of poor children in the five villages of Beoung Tum Pun’s public schools with two major aspects of the program: tutorial fees for primary and secondary school and a program of overseeing the education of each child by our school assistance manager.

Our early childhood development efforts are concentrated in two of the most deprived neighborhoods at the Pre-K Ta Koung and Tu Taing areas for children ages three to five to prepare them, especially Vietnamese children, to enter the Cambodian school system in grade one.

The third center for children is located in Takhmao as part of a new evangelization program by the Catholic Church. Additionally, basic financial support is provided for a small group of mostly elderly people who have no means of support.

Your gift will make a difference in the life of a child.

Missioner Responsible:

Fr. John J. Beeching, M.M.

For more than two decades, Wat Prok School, established by Maryknoll two decades ago, has provided education, skill training as well as clothing, food and medical assistance to 34 and 52 Mon Migrant boys, ranging from six to seventeen years old, living at small Mon Buddhist monastery in Bangkok. The number of students varies primarily due to new students.

The boys parents are migrant workers mostly working in the fish process plant outside of Bangkok or on the fishing boats. The Maryknoll Thailand team members work with the Informal Education Department of the Thai Government to provide basic education to the boys, including Mon, Thai and English language training, some basic grammar school classes and sponsors skill training for the older boys.

Initial emphasis is on teaching the boys the Thai language, which makes them eligible for special temporary ID cards until age 17. The younger is then recognized as having a right to be in the country. It also provides protection against the boys being trafficked, given the extent of the problem of trafficking in Southeast Asia.

Missioner Responsible:

Bro. William Raible, M.M.

Bro. William Raible, M.M.’s project mainly focuses on Asylum Seekers, Refugees, Prisoners and Victims of Human Trafficking. We work as a team and in collaboration with Caritas-Thailand, Jesuit Refugee Services (JRS), Catholic Office for Emergency Relief and Refugees (COERR) and five Catholic parishes in the Archdiocese of Bangkok, as well as close cooperation with the Thai people in our effort to assist these various groups of people in need.

Many people continue to flee their homes, villages and nations for a variety of reasons, mainly Religious and Political persecution. In the city of Bangkok alone, it is estimated that we have over 6,000 illegal Refugees and Asylums Seekers. The people we reach out to are people running from the violence in their homelands and they come from the various countries of Asia and Africa.

Poor living conditions and violence in their homelands have resulted in an increase in refugees into Thailand from Sri Lanka, Pakistan and other countries in the Middle East. Brother Bill and others take care of their physical needs by providing food, clothing, shelter, medical care and education to refugee families as well as the poor Hill Tribes people in North of Thailand.

These poor people speak little Thai and need medical care, food at times, transportation for their children to and from school. We do our best to protect, feed and help, as we continue to be inspired by Pope Francis, who asks all of us to continue to reach out to the Stranger, the Refugee and the Poor.

Founded in 1992 by Father Bill Tillson, M.M., who died in mission serving the poor, this program is now continued by Father William McIntire, M.M. This mission teaches poor women how to sew professionally so they can help support their families.

Over the years, more than 200 poor women have improved their economic situation. In addition, women receive an academic education since many never went to school.

Your gift will enable Father McIntire to replace the old sewing machines and will insure a better future for women at risk.
