RICE IS LIFE
Ah yes. Rural life in Isaan country. It’s that time again. All of us at Ban Kung Learning Center are deep into rice planting season!

I cannot believe the insane amount of work it takes to harvest a grain of rice. Farmers rise before dawn and toil in hot muddy water all day until sunset. Oversized hats are worn for protection from the unrelenting sun. No doubt it’s difficult working the paddy fields. 

Mature rice seedlings are pulled up, tied in a bundle, and replanted with the appropriate amount of space to grow. If the water disappears from the fields because the weather is too hot, the harvest can be bad.

Rice prices have increased sharply but it’s not offsetting the doubling of production costs such as fertilizer, the cost of diesel and so on. The farmers living standards and way of life remain the same, but rice has become so valuable that they must be guarded by family members day and night against theft.

Yet when the work is done after a long day, farmers and families gather together to share super spicy Som tum (papaya salad), have a drink or two, and bask in the collective glow that life-sustaining food is coming for the people. It’s a joyous occasion that’s been the norm for untold generations.

CREATING BEAUTY AND HOPE
Our precious kids understand their world through art. Moods are elevated. It gives them meaning. Simply appreciating art improves the quality of life and makes us feel good.

Art programs can focus on entire communities faced with poverty. They becomes an advocate for those who cannot advocate for themselves - a platform of expression for the voiceless.

All children naturally engage in the process of drawing. Feeling more in control of emotional issues is an important benefit during the process. It helps them work through the challenges of daily living.

Kid’s access their vivid imagination and often want to share the story behind the drawing.

Research indicates during early childhood, kids’ brains are quickly forming neural connectors. When they draw and paint, their senses help “wire” the brain for deep thinking.

Students are likely to pay closer attention for longer periods of time when they have the freedom to choose.

A presidentially appointed Committee on the Arts and Humanities showed results stating that low-income children who were highly involved in the arts performed better, stayed in school longer, and scored higher in math assessments.

Students are also more likely to find stable employment, and perform volunteer work in their communities. The importance of drawing in education cannot be overstated.

Our deep appreciation to the kind supporters of ASHA for helping to provide this beautiful facility and program, the art supplies and most importantly, believing in our students.

GROWING UP GREEN
“The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just the body, but the soul.” – Alfred Austin

Our popular cooking class at Ban Kung Learning Center is rapidly expanding. Although this region boasts some of the best rice farmers anywhere, there’s still a lot to learn about growing other vegetables. 

We located a team here in the village and construction is underway on two large growing areas for the kids.

From the garden to the table - growing, cooking and eating your own food. When finished, we will harvest and utilize the vegetables in our cooking class. It’s been said a garden feeds more than a table, it feeds a soul. These skills are necessary to improve the condition of the people here.

Thank you ASHA!
