There are 100 dogs at WVS Care for Dogs Foundation’s care, all of which were homeless and are now healthy and in good care. The foundation also helps other stray dogs around Chiang Mai and nearby provinces; sterilize stray dogs in temple areas, give medical care to sick or injured dogs and provide shelter to dogs that have no place to stay. The foundation is looking for volunteers from all walks of life to help us with the many tasks that help improve the dogs’ lives.

READ ME A BOOK : ACOUSTICAL LIBERATION OF BOOK

"Read Me A Book" project was initiated by Chawla Charity Foundation who is inquiring into how we can blend our passions to create a long-term project for improving everyone's knowledge and cultivating their creativity. We believe that education is the key to improving the quality of people's lives. We would like to make an impact with the youth, the blind or those who may not have had educational opportunity. This may be their only chance. Deep inside, they would like to imagine, be curious and want to express their ideas and their knowledge like anybody else.

We would like to give them an opportunity to gain more useful knowledge by listening to stories though our volunteer audio books. We believe this would multiply the benefit of the impact. Listening to stories from audio books would allow the audiences to endlessly create, analyze and learn. In the mean time, this will cultivate the love of learning and create enthusiastic readers for life.

Open the doors of opportunity to a brighter future.....

How can you participate in "Read Me A Book" project?

In you want to participate in the Read Me A Book project, you do not need any prior experience to volunteer for Chawla Charity Foundation, nor do you need to audition or send us sample. All you need is your own voice, some free software, your own computer, or any type of mobile phone or smartphone, which is able to record. Record your own volunteer audio book so that it can be shared with the blind or individuals who don't know how to read. Listening to audio books can be of great assistance to them. By doing this you can help our society to be better and more fair.

Share a story from a delightful book, share your knowledge... Sacrifice your time for only few minutes a day to record your own voice and send a personalized read-along to Chawla Charity Foundation. Firstly, choose any type of delightful books that you are interested in (fiction, non-fiction, comic, any article from newspapers or magazines, classic, detective or philosophy, etc.) that you wish to share then read-out-loud and record those texts in your own voice. Before starting to record a story please introduce the book name, full book title and author's (and translator's) name or article's name, chapter or title name and any other important intro information. For a long textbook we prefer that volunteers break the recording into chapters or sessions that should be no longer than 20 minutes for each audio book file. After you finish recording each chapter please say "Open the next file to continue this audio book" if you have reached the end of the book please read out loud "You have reached the end of this audio book".

After you are finished reading either a whole book or a chapter and you are satisfied with the quality, please send us the audio book file to readme@chawlacharity.orgPlease provide us with your personal information (Full name, phone number and email address) so that we can make you one of Chawla Charity Foundation volunteers and to inform you about the foundation's new activities and events.

So, apart from creating "Read Me A Book" project, we would also like to bring our earnestness back to the origins of our inspiration and pay it forward to everyone to have good educated as well. We aspire for our creation to inspire for a better and brighter society for the world we live in today. You can help the foundation even more by inviting your family or friends to be a part of this mission.

CHILD SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

Child scholarship links us to a bond of care and concern. "You can't change the world but you can give children an educational opportunity."

In our society, there are still many poor and needy children waiting for 'generous donors' to share their kindness and the promise of hope for their future. Chawla Charity Foundation focuses on helping and improving the lives of poor children through education.

Education – to the poor, it is the way out of poverty. But how can a family that has barely enough to eat, send their children to school? Chawla Charity Foundation scholarships are intended to benefit the underprivileged children in both the short and long term. With the opportunity to study further so that "education" will not be seen as a burden for the living conditions and economy of families but more as a tool to help children escape from the economic and social problems and lead to a better life for them and their families.


SCHOOL UNIFORM DONATED TO 500 LEARNERS FROM NIMIT ASIA FOUNDATION

On Saturday August the 19th 2017, the Chawla Charity Foundation recently donated school uniforms to 500 boys and girls of Nimit Asia Foundation, a nonprofit Christian development organization committed to rescuing children who have lost one or both parents or who have been abused or abandoned or stateless children in Northern Thailand. The vision of the foundation is not just about rescuing children, but importantly is also about providing a safe and loving home. Working through its offices in 3 main provinces which are Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai and Tak.

Our volunteer staff went to visit the children in Hod, one of their offices in Chiang Mai about 3 hours’ drive from Chiang Mai city. The purpose of the visit was to donate student uniforms and bring some food to the children of the school foundation, so a donation of this kind means a lot to them.

The principal was grateful and expressed her gratitude for how the school was honored. “What the foundation have done will be memorable forever for the school and the parents of the school, a difference has been made and has also brought smiles to the little angels.”

The donations are part of Chawla Charity Foundation to reach out to the community. The foundation chairperson Mr. Niran Chawla said: “Previously outreaches were focusing on giving nutrition to children living with disability and assisting senior citizens. This donation, we decided to come to the learners, give them school uniforms and give them the words of encouragement to study hard, to make up their minds about the future they want and become responsible citizen to society.”

We distribute charitable donations throughout Northern Thailand. We welcome aid from any individual, organization or company from abroad or in Thailand. Every small bit helps, even if it is one pair of socks, one pen, or a sleeping bag or a financial contribution of B10 the equivalent of US$0.35.

Your support to our organization is greatly appreciated. You are welcome to be an integral part of our organization by contributing either your personal time or by giving us monetary support. We would love for our well-wishers and like-minded individuals to visit our organization and observe the work we do. We always like to hear your feedback, suggestions etc. We thank you.

A SPECIAL DAY AT SRISANGWAN CHIANG MAI SCHOOL

On 24th June 2017, Chawla Charity Foundation and volunteers have visited and hosted a lunch meal for children at Srisangwan Chiang Mai School – one of the “Royal’s Projects”, set up by Somdet Phra Srinagarindra Boromarajajonani to provide better living standards and opportunities for her subjects. The school offers education for children and young people with a wide variety of disabilities; operates from kindergarten level up to grade 12 level with about 250 students. The students are Cerebral Palsy, Spinal Bifida, Spinal Cord Injury, Congenital Anomaly, Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenital, Muscular Dystrophy, Polio, Loss of Limbs and Autism.

We headed to the school with lots of delicious food and dessert including Stir-fired chicken wings with fish sauce, Green Curry with fish and Thai desserts; Coconut Milk Pudding. We arrived to the school a little bit early before their lunch time, the school Principal with staff and students were waiting to welcome us. Some of them were helping us by carrying food and leading us to the dining hall where the students were having meals. We were helping the school’s staffs to prepare food and the dining hall to be ready for serving lunch. At 11:30 a.m., all students have arrived to the dining hall and sit at their table happily as they have known that they would have a special and delicious meal. We were helping the school’s staffs to serve their lunch. For children who have multiple disabilities with self-feeding problem got special good care by big sisters and brothers including the school's staff. They said to us that lunch was very delicious, they like everything we cook. They seemed to be fascinated by us, and they were very polite too. We felt the purity of the laughs and the smiles of them so we couldn’t imagine that these children are living with disabilities and many of them have already lost their parents.

After finished lunch, we then took some photo and they gave us very impressively and beautifully handmade candles made by student, and then students helped the school’s staff to clean up the canteen, brushed their teeth as their routine with joyful discipline. After that they went to football, some played guitar and sang a song, and some played with their toys. We had a conversation with the Principal and some volunteers, we found that most students come to that school from relatively poor families and some of them have already lost their parents.

It’s incredibly heartening to see Sri Sangwan giving young people with a disability an education. The teachers encourage the students to be the best they can be. There is still a little way to go regarding attitudes to disability. But the staff at Sri Sangwan is providing opportunities for their students to become change agents of the future.

What amazes us was that losing ability did not deter them from being blissfully happy. In retrospect, we realized that we did not meet a single student who perceived their inability to develop normally as a disability. This, we believe, is credit that is largely due to the teachers who never allowed them to feel inferior to “normal” students.

The atmosphere at that day was filled with smiles and warmth of both the givers and the recipients. We all had such a great time on this visit and really learnt about their life while we were having fun at the same time despite in a very short period of time. Overall, it was an amazing experience and we are sure we would definitely go and visit them at the school foundation again.

Thank you again for you all who support our organization, we could not do what we do without donors such as you. We look forward to volunteer work with you in the future. We, and those we serve, deeply appreciate your generosity.
