Appeal launched to help desperately poor girl who is top of the class

Thai Rath have reported on the story of a very poor girl but highly talented student in Chainat who needs help.

Nong Earn – or 16 year old Sasithorn Nuchyoo – has been top of the grade for the past three years and shows enormous talent in music.

But there are fears that if her educational needs are not met in the future she may have to quit her studies and lose what looks like a bright future.

Earn lives in a ramshackle dwelling with her father who cannot work due to kidney disease. He mum has left home and sends just 300-500 baht a month to take care of her and her dad.

This hardly makes a dent in their needs and they live on handouts from welfare and charitable organizations.

Earn has had an educational bursary for many years but this may not continue for much longer.

Reporters from Thai Rath caught up with the popular student at Kuruprachasan School in Chainat yesterday – when they arrived she was expertly answering questions in English class.

Her music teacher Surapong Pinkaew, 37, said that Nong Earn was an unusual talent and was adored by everyone. She came from a very poor background, he said.

He said that she showed great skill at the clarinet, a difficult instrument to master. She had persevered and always represented the school at public functions from weddings to funerals.

She has been named as the top student in each of the last three school years and is now studying in M4. Including this year she has three more to go before seeking further education.

But it is not certain where the money for that and her other needs could come from so Thai Rath have issued an appeal for help.

Donations can be made to an account in her own name: Sasithorn Nuchyoo 0202 1971 3839, Ormsin Bank, Sangkhaburi branch, Chainat.

Or those interested in helping Earn can contact her school during regular hours on 056 481439.
