At CCD we believe that every child has a right to learn, gain independence and skills, but also to have fun! For the children from the government orphanage homes, many of them rarely go outside of the homes, let along away on holiday. And for the families in our community projects, many of them cannot afford to go away, or find the logistics of taking a severely disabled child away just too challenging. An action packed few days teaches the children so many life skills, builds new friendships and also grows their confidence.
A Three Day Holiday to the Beach
Each year we organise a camp for 200 children (300 in total including carers) to go to Prachuap Khiri Khan province at the end of April. For everyone at CCD – children, staff and volunteers – it is one of the highlights of our year! Many of our children have never felt the sand between their toes, or see the sea.
