As you walk through the narrow alleyways you will discover that most now have the basic amenities such as electricity, gas and some modern conveniences. Visit the Duang Prateep Foundation whose primary focus has been to help the urban poor, with a special emphasis on community development and on giving the best possible opportunities to the children of the area. Here you will receive an overview of the project and their goals for the future. Interact with the children aged up to 6 years old, during their morning classes which follow the Montessori style of learning and form a bond with them during their hands-on lessons.
