Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The Northeast region of Thailand is poorest region in the country and has the highest rates of poverty. We aim to collaborate with local organizations to promote community development, eradicate poverty, and support equality for all despite their economic status. Not all children receive an equal chance at education, keeping those less fortunate stuck in the cycle of poverty.

Dental Program

Mundo Exchange teams up with local schools in rural Buengkan, Thailand who cooperate with the government to bring in dentists and provide dental care to the children and teachers once a year. Mundo not only provides education on how to properly care for your teeth, but also makes sure that all children and teachers leave with a free toothbrush and various other dental hygiene products, as well as the knowledge of how to use them!

Sufficient nutrition and proper meals are critical in the first five years of a child’s life to ensure healthy, normal development.

Every child deserves a healthy start in life, and no one deserves to go to bed hungry. Driven by these beliefs, Mundo Exchange fights to ensure that everyone has access to sufficient and nutritious food.Sufficient nutrition and proper meals are critical in the first five years of a child’s life to ensure healthy, normal development.

In the face of abject poverty, many families in Chajul can barely afford to put food on the table, much less send their children to school.
Every child has the right to an education which is why Mundo Exchange is a proud and strong supporter of CEMIK – a school dedicated to giving young children living in poverty a free education in both Spanish and their native Maya language, Ixil, so they can give back to their community.

Children and youth

Lack of adequate housing for children, the sick, and elders is one of the most critical problems facing those living in poverty in Issan, Thailand. Many homes are built haphazardly from scrap materials found nearby, and very few have doors, much less doors that lock. Every person has the right to safe, secure shelter that protects them from dangerous elements – both natural and human . Mundo Exchange teams up with local communities to ensure that every family has a roof over their heads.

Population(s) Served

Families

Thailand's criteria for providing funding in schools is based on the number of students attending the schools. This system leaves small schools in rural villages with many low income families without enough funding to provide a quality education or even stay open. Mundo is trying to provide a scholarship for two teachers for a small school we have worked closely with. We realize that without these scholarships the school will not have enough teachers and will be forced to shut down. Many of the famiies in this village live in poverty and will not be able to pay the transportation fees to send their children to a school farther away, and many of these kids will be excluded from the opportunity for education and have a lower chance of escaping the cycle of poverty.
