The Story

Celebrate World Elephant Day & Thai Mother's Day Through Education & Art at Baan Rajawadee - Home For Mentally Disabled Orphans on August 12th 2017. 

Baan Rajawadee has a boy section with 640 children aged 7 - 18 and the girl section has over 500 children aged 7 - 18. Most of these children are permanent long term residents and all suffer from various ranges of both mental and physical disabilites. 

Help us to help them by making a donation - dedicate it to a beloved child or someone special and we will share and thank them from all the kids and elephants involved! 

We are going to Celebrate World Elephant Day & HM Queen Sirikit's birthday (Thai Mother's Day) through education and art with 60 boys of different ages, all of whom are permanent residents at Baan Rajawadee. Funds raised go towards Elephant conservation and education as well as securing more funding for the group homes in order to provide 5 tons of rice every month to help feed the children in Baan Rajawadee. 

Date & Time: Saturday, 12:00 - 4:00pm August 12th 2017 

Location: Baan Rajawadee - Home for Mentally Handicapped Children 78/6 Moo 1 Soi Tiwanon-Pakkred 1, Tiwanon Road, Bangtarad, Pakkred, Nonthaburi 11120 

Activity: We will have 3 stations making different kinds of Elephant Art. Before each activity, once all the group has gathered and are waiting, we will explain that its the Queen's birthday and elephants are Thailand's national animal and a very important part of Thai culture and history. An explanation in Thai about why elephants are endangered (ivory, land encroachment, hunting) and why they are being protected in the wild and captivity. A little on Elephant pregnancy and the family unit and how the calf's stay with their mothers for up to 3 years etc.

Thai Harvest/SOS will be joining the Khiri Reach team to provide 500kg of fresh fruit and vegetables for all of Baan Rajawadee and the other 3 orphanages and homes directly related.

  • Station 1: Elephant Parade baby elephant painting - children with medium disability and medium functionality will be given a model elephant to paint in the most artistic way they can.
  • Station 2: Paper plate Elephant masks - children with low disability and high functionality will be given paper plates and templates to cut out and and paint elephant masks. Once cut and painted the pieces will be assembled to make complete masks.
  • Station 3: Hand Painting Elephant Heads - children with high disability and low functionality will be given paper with an elephant face printed on it. They will create the elephant's 'missing' ears by painting their hands and printing/pressing them onto the side of the elephants face.
