Kate's Project Trust reaches out to the most needy and vulnerable living in the slums of Pattaya Thailand and its primary aim is to ease the strife of poverty and to offer education to children. The prevention or relief of poverty for the public benefit and also the long term aim of offering education with the potential of employment on leaving

school. Advancing education for the public benefit by the provision of school fees paid / school uniforms and purchasing textbooks for children aged 5-17 living in Pattayas slums in Thailand. The relief of poverty of young people living in Pattaya's slum areas who are often unregistered migrants, socially excluded in particular by offering them education with the aim of graduating and achieving some form of employment at the end and being accepted within the community. As trustees, both Andrew McCarroll and Roisin Hall continue to promote Kate's Project Trust by providing information and raising awareness and believe that the neediest and mosy vulnerable have benefited greatly since the inception of the charity in 2006. The KATE'S PROJECT charity is non-religious and never questions or judges the religion of anyone who comes to us for help. We promote compassion, and while we are Catholic / Christian ourselves we in no way promote or demand following or acceptance of our beliefs. The families are nearly all Buddhists and practice their religion openly and we accept that. The main aim of the Trust is to offer education to all who live within the slum areas of Pattaya, Thailand. The families will see that we are an organisation whose aim it is to improve and offer education and not to indoctrinate / or "press" our religious views. As Catholics ourselves it is part of our beliefs to reach out and serve. The main purpose and aim of Kate’s Project is to offer education to the absolute poorest and most vulnerable living in the slums of Pattaya, Thailand. Our purpose is to pay school fees for the children and offer basic foods for the poorest families. The benefits of the program is to help break the cycle of poverty and give these marginalized people a chance of employment and a better standard of life. This has shown itself in recent years with children going to vocational schools and learning trades. Some of the older children have since gone on to gain employment with the spin-off that their quality of life improves. There are also positive benefits to the children and families in that basic healthcare is offered and if any major illnesses occur then hospital fees will be paid for by Kate’s Project Trust. The benefits are capable of being demonstrated and there is no private benefit or harm.
