Family History and General Information
Tle and Tey are brothers. Tle comes from a poor and broken family. His parents are separated, and both have started new families. His father left Tle and his brother with their grandmother without any support or contact. His grandmother is now sick and is unable to have a stable job and care for the boys. She asked for help from the Chonburi Shelter for Children and Families, with the hope that he receives the best education available, and therefore the possibility of a good future. Finally, the Center in Chonburi contacted our Village and Tle and his older brother were transferred to our Fr. Ray Children’s Village.
Tle is welcomed by every member of the Village to live in the tenth house. Like all children here, he 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.
Tle is studying in Grade 4 with his favourite subjects being Computers, Physical Education and Science. His teachers say that Tle is a clever boy who has a lot of energy that he needs to practice focusing into his school work.
At school, Tle gets along well with all his classmates. He is friends with everyone, but his closest friend is Ben. They play everything together, including Lego, football and puzzles. Tle is a very active young boy who loves running around, playing football, watching cartoons and competing in marbles with his friends.
Tle has a very good appetite, eating pretty much anything but his favourite food he says is spicy som tam papaya salad, and the ever popular Mama instant noodles. Overall, he continues to be healthy and strong with no major issues.
Tle is living happily in Rose House. He has the daily chore of cleaning the bathroom floor each morning and evening, which he does with a little encouragement from her House Mother.
In his free time Tle likes to play with his friends at the Children’s Village. He is a very adventurous young boy that likes to get into some mischief with his friends. Although we know that boys his age get into lots of different adventures we try to persuade him to be a bit more careful when he is playing and not get himself of his friends hurt. He loves playing football, reading comics and watching cartoons. There are many boys in Rose House that are around the same age and they stick together and play everything together.
