Can you see me? Can you see me? We surely see overcrowded classrooms and poor infrastructures, but we also see the teachers doing their best to improve the situation in these remote rural communities.

The Erawan Shrine The Erawan Shrine The Brahman shrine of Erewan is said to continue to bring those who visit good luck: people pray to him for everything from a new child to a lottery ticket.
