What

November Rain teamed up with Australian horticulturists to implement the first Waterculture system in the Children's Rescue Mission in Northern Thailand.

The Waterculture Project is a fresh produce growing system that has been developed to produce high quality, naturally grown fruit and vegetables by way of hydroponics.

The system is inexpensive and maximizes the usage of natural and local resources, as well as renewable energy (Solar). Therefore, it is well suited to application in developing countries and remote villages. The nutritional value of the produce is extremely high and improves the health of its consumers, especially growing children.

How Much

Thank you to all of the people who purchased November Rain ponchos this last quarter. The 10% pledge of revenue from November Rain has allowed us to spend $3047 USD on the Waterculture project in the Children's Rescue Mission in Mae Suai, Thailand. What this means is the project can feed 100 children continuously each year!!!! Thank you !!

Who & Why

The Rescue Mission for Children Inc. was started in 1994 to aid in the social advancement and economic development of the Akha Hill tribe group and its children, although its doors are open to any children in need of care. Primarily it looks after the Akha hill tribe people, one of the smallest, poorest and least developed hill tribe groups in Southeast Asia.

Many of this population fled across the Burma border to Thailand fleeing from villages destroyed by Opium dealers, people traffickers, and sex industry slave dealers. The children of this hill tribe are at the greatest risk, and it is The Rescue Mission for Children that opens it's doors and offers them safety, food, and shelter.
