Since there are few if any such organizations in our local area, in November 2007 our new foundation employees and volunteers took a trip to research several child home organizations in the Chiang Rai – Chiang Mai area. We passed through a national park on the way, and also visited the King's mother’s home in Chiang Rai. Here are some pictures from that trip.

Just completed child residence home in Chiang Rai for an organization whose mission is similar to ours.
The girls have yet to decorate their new bedroom. Bedrooms of our homes will be the same size.
Our child homes will use an outdoor kitchen like this home’s. They work well in Thailand.
