Family History and General Information
Ploy is from a poor and broken family. She is from Nonthaburi, a neighbouring province of Bangkok. Her parents are separated. She lives with her mother until January this year. Her mother remarried and lives with her new family. Her mother left Ploy to live with her grandparents who are very old and have an unsteady income. The grandfather is a motorbike taxi driver while the grandmother is collecting garbage but her work is inconsistent. The grandparents are unable to take care of Ploy. They then came to our Fr. Ray Children’s Village with the hope that Ploy receives the best education available, and therefore the possibility of a good future.
Ploy is welcomed by every member of the Village to live in the ninth house. Like all children here, she is well looked after by the Caregiver “Mother” who takes care of the children under the “we are family” concept and gives them the family life that all children require and deserve.
Ploy finished her 2nd term of Grade 3. She continues her Grade 4 when the new school year started at the middle of this month. This past school term her favourite subject was Thai Language as she said she loves reading stories. On the other hand, the hardest subject for her was Mathematics, as she said it can take her a long time to solve the maths problems.
At school, Ploy gets along well with all her classmates. She is friends with everyone, but at the Village, her best friend is Mod. They are very close and prefer to talk amongst each other. They are chatting about life and anything that is happening at the Village and the school. They enjoy watching cartoons and playing badminton together.
Ploy has a very good appetite, eating pretty much anything, but her favourite food she says is stir fried minced pork with basil leaves and fried egg- a very popular answer amongst our children. Overall, she continues to be healthy and strong with no major issues.
Ploy is living happily in House Number 9. During the school’s holidays she was lucky to be able to go to Hat Sai Kaew Navy Beach with the rest of the Village. Ploy loves swimming and she had an amazing time playing in the water and sand – exploring all the little fish and creatures the beach had to offer. Moreover, she also participated in a charity project called “Strengthening Social Immunity of Children and Youth” at the Children’s Home.
