Family History and General Information
Bow, View, and Itt are siblings from a poor and broken family in Bueng Kan – a province in the northeast of Thailand. Their parents have been separated since eight years ago when Bow was 5 years old. The father whereabouts is unknown. Bow is the first one of 3 siblings. Not a long period after her parents are separated, Bow’s mother left her children to live with their grandparents, and she went to work as a construction worker in Pattaya.
Bow’s grandfather is only a person who works to support the family. He is a worker in a rubber plantation, and does not have enough money to properly take care of his grandchildren. As Bow has matured and is now a young lady she has attracted unwanted and inappropriate attention from male neighbours. In order to keep her safe, her grandmother decided to contact her mother in Pattaya, and her mother asked for help from our Drop-In Center with the hope that she and her 2 siblings receive the best education available, and therefore the possibility of a good future.
Bow finished her 2nd term of Grade 8 with a 3.06 GPA (out of possible 4.00). She will be advancing to Grade 9 when the new school year starts in May. This past school term her favourite subjects were English and Science. She loves English because she wishes to be able to communicate with many people from all over the world, and she knows English is the language to do this.
