Hill-tribe schooling gets hindered by household sanitation in Northern Thailand


#1


Buddharaksa Foundation runs an English program at the Border Patrol Police schools in Chiangrai, Phayao, and Nan Provinces, Northern Thailand. One of our teachers observes a number of his kindergarten students skipping the class from time to time. He later finds out that diarrhea is the most common cause of absenteeism.

Problem statement: Is household sanitation the only cause of school absenteeism or there are other key factors? How can we solve absenteeism for good?
