While the education in Bangkok and major cities of the country are being developed continuously, many children who live in remote rural areas don’t have the opportunities to go to school because of the poverty of the family and a lack of resources and educational facilities, both a teaching aid and education personnel.
With recognition of the disparity in education which is a key factor in the development of the country, “Rural Teacher Development Foundation” was established in 2001 with the intention to give rural children more opportunities as well as to improve the quality and standard of their education.
In 2003, “Rural Teacher Development Foundation” was renamed “Teacher Plus Foundation” to improve educational personnel in rural schools. The Foundation encouraged teachers to develop themselves and their teaching methods continuously by designing an effective method of teaching basic English and lessons planning for teachers through several workshops organized in various regions.
The Foundation Board of Directors recognized the variety of social problems at present such as eldery care, victims of disasters who also need help. Therefore the Board has expanded its objectives and renamed the Foundation to “Navatham Foundation” on 31 August 2012. The Foundation still continues to develop education in rural areas including the promotion of culture, moral and religious.
