Phuket Has Been Good To Us (PHBGTU) is a Thai registered children’s charity established after the 2004 Asian Tsunami destroyed the schools we teach in. Our mission is to improve the economic opportunities and life chances of underprivileged Thai children, by funding and implementing high quality English language education in Government schools in Phuket. Our goal is to help Thai youth become capable and confident English speakers so that they may secure well-paid employment. We teach English classes, for free, to over 1,200 Thai students aged 3 to 18 in three Government schools. Without our support these children would not have access to an English speaking teacher. There are also 170 children who live full time at school as they are orphans or their families are not able to look after them. PHBGTU English teachers and volunteers run an afterschool program, Coconut Club, where these children have fun with arts, crafts, sports and swimming classes.
