This is the story of a group of foreign teachers and their students from AU can accomplish with the appropriate level of nam jai (น้าใจ) or compassion for those in need. It is about helping Burmese students in a border school who have come to Thailand to improve their educational opportunities for both second and third level education. However, the work involved is not just education per se but also to improve their health and give them nutritional guidance.

It included a medical examination for all the students and included medical guidance on what they needed to improve their health welfare. In addition, a seed project was established so the students could grow their own vegetables to supplement their nutritional intake.
