Paws for a Cause

(Since February 2011)

Education plays a very important role in making our lives in the future as successful as possible so having been provided a very good education here in Harrow, we truly feel fortunate that we have this opportunity. However, there are a lot of places in this country where not every child has a chance to receive a good education similar to ours.

For a lot of schools in the provinces and poor villages, the opportunities that are offered are very much limited. Unlike Harrow, most village schools have inadequate teaching and sports facilities and very often there are not enough resources to provide proper schooling. Furthermore because education in these poor areas is considered as a matter of lesser priority, village schools have barely enough support from the government. Therefore, in our own little way, we have come up with a project of how we can make a difference to these children who are less fortunate than us... Read more →

Member’s Personal Thoughts & Experiences

Among all our projects, this was truly the most memorable and the most I’m proud of. All the hard work from the long preparation and organization in order to bring the best out of this project undoubtedly paid off. All the expenses for the materials and facilities we had planned to donate to the school was covered by the vegetable sales’ earnings. My day started off with a little nervousness and anxiety since this was the first time for me to actually teach children in a classroom. As the day proceeded, these feelings slowly turned into excitement and satisfaction. The children enjoyed listening and responded without hesitation. There was also so much enthusiasm from everyone including the teachers and they could not thank us enough for finding time to care for them and bring the children bliss and happiness. This experience is one that will definitely be treasured not only by me, but by all of us in The Lionheart Society.

“Paws for a Cause” played a huge part in The Lionheart Society’s success. The Lionheart Society was given an opportunity to be teachers for an afternoon at Baan NongTaa Kaew School. I was touched by their charming faces as we taught them Art, English, Physical Education and Maths. They were all so eager and anticipated to learn our subjects. Working with all the kids was a delight for me and I believe that we have all achieved many things. Although they were restless and a little bit naughty I was very sad to leave them at the end of the day.

“Paws for a Cause” was very touching. Members of the Lionheart Society taught different subjects to a range of year groups, starting fromK2to Year 4. Our visit to Baan Nong Taa Kaew was fantastic, and we were greeted with warm smiles and enthusiastic children. At first, I was nervous about teaching, but as I got to know the children I soon become fond of them – washing away all my anxiety. Although I was exhausted, having dealt with energetic, young children for 5 continuous hours, I was really happy to see the children’s smiles and laughter throughout the day. Moreover, I was extremely proud of myself for being able to pull off something that created happiness for others and that I did something that people deeply appreciated.

The major project “Paws for a Cause” was a project where we went to teach and donate things to the kids at Baan Nong Taa Kaew school, Nakhon Ratchasima. In the morning, I taught the kids basketball and football, then played simple games with the younger kids. In the afternoon, we added lots of donated books to their small library. Lastly, we gave the school the rest of the resources we bought for them and ended this project with smiles on all our faces.

It was a hard time teaching those less fortunate children, but education is simply the key to success as it passes down from one generation to another. While I taught them to the best of my abilities, they taught me how to enjoy education with the aid of such little equipment. Just a smile or laughter is a sign of happiness, which I was so glad see. It truly made my day.
