    FOOTBALL KITS BO KHAM SCHOOL
    The Chiang Mai ToyRide has donated 30 football uniforms to the Bo Kham School near Samoeng. We will be notified of the date for the first football game. This will be sometime in early July and CMTR will organize a ride to the the game and a day of interaction with the kids.

    SAN TOR & HUAY NAM KHAO SCHOOL PROJECTS
    The Chiang Mai ToyRide Committee is currently meeting with staff of the San Tor School in Hang Dong and the Huay Nam Khao School in Mae Wang. Both of these schools have been brought to our attention as being in extreme need of assistance.
    Under a Playgrounds Plus+ Program Chiang Mai Toy Ride will work with teachers and staff to identify and assist with the needs of the students and individual schools.
    CMTR will need volunteer assistants and of course sponsors to make this another very special day for the children.

    PA MUANG SCHOOL TOILETS PROJECT
    This Thai pre-school is in desperate need of new toilet facilities and other necessities such as learning material playground equipment.
    Chiang Mai ToyRIde is currently obtaining bids from contractors and hope to have this project underway soon.
    Upon completion there will be a dedication event involving the children’s families and local villagers. There will also be a day of clean up and fix up around the school culminating in a celebration of games and toys for the children, and a great social opportunity for the adults.

    EQUAL-EYES PROGRAM
    Eye care, especially eye exams and glasses themselves are severely lacking in many Thai areas. In conjunction with our “Playgrounds Plus+” program The Chiang Mai ToyRide would like to provide eye exams and glasses to some of targeted schools.
    The CMTR will contribute funds to identify and help obtain care for those children who may require such services.

    PLAYGROUNDS PLUS+ PROGRAM
    The Chiang Mai ToyRide Committee has begun a new program that is called Playgrounds Plus+. Upon identifying schools that fit the criterion of “children in need”, and “children under the radar” CMTR will purchase;
    Playground Equipment (as needed)
    Athletic Equipment
    Educational Toys
    Books
    Blankets
    Other items as coordinated between the school and the CMTR committee.
    As other needs are identified, they may be included into the Playground Plus+ Program as theCMTR budget allows. As always your donations and/or participation are needed and welcome

    You little beauty. Many thanks for your genoristy & supporting the Chiang Mai ToyRide "long term."

    Indeed the Chiang Mai ToyRide is a long term project designed to help children in need, plus bring motorcyclists together for charitable activities - helping children "under the radar," who otherwise might not receive much help or support from the government / organizations.
