The Nexus

Opening Day 2007, Ban Don Kayom School 'Khawsook' Library, Yasothon Province, NE Thailand   Opening Day 2007, Ban Don Kayom School 'Khawsook' Library, Yasothon Province, NE Thailand

Application of the word ‘Nexus’

It is important to look at my critical thinking and the impact my vision and revelation has had upon my fellow villagers who now all actively assist with me in the building of the ‘King’s libraries’ for our fellow villagers in the Yasothon province of NE Thailand.

The libraries are built to proper specifications in dedication to our most honored ‘King‘.

Thus, the vision of building a series of ‘King’s Libraries’ has become the ‘nexus’ or ‘core’ and ‘central’ idea of providing an alternative path or avenue for the children and parents of my neighboring villages to follow.

Why is this so necessary and critical, and important to world harmony and cohesion, you may ask?

Answer: Because the foundation of this non-profit initiative stands upon the manifestation of my revelation. Here is why.

A Problem to be Solved

Please join in our effort to assist in the building of additional libraries for the villagers of northeastern Thailand who are so desperate in need of proper modern enlightenment.

Our Mission Statement

The ‘Earth Angel Project’ is all about preserving the culture of the provinces of northeastern Thailand as well as the United States of America through education, and by promoting healthy awareness throughout all villages and communities.

Self-sufficiency for all villagers and community members, inclusive for all, can be achieved by evoking environmentally sound and friendly methods of agriculture sustenance.

The Earth Angel Project Organization, Inc. is an Arizona non-profit corporation dedicated to improving educational opportunities for children and adults of all ages.  It is also a federally approved 501 (c) (3) organization.

The Translation

Opening Day 2007, Ban Don Kayom School 'Khawsook' Library, Yasothon Province, NE Thailand

I have read and translated ‘The Missing Piece‘ to many students of the school districts where my village libraries have been built. While I was reading the book to the students, I also realized I had just brought back the largest missing piece of my own life.

Namely, the priceless value of education. I had helped to bring back to my very own grammar school where I had graduated from in 1966 the most valuable treasure of all.

I then and there decided to continue to share with the children of these new generations, that which I had remembered so well from the past.

 

 

 

 

Join Hands

Opening Day 2007, Ban Don Kayom School 'Khawsook' Library, Yasothon Province, NE Thailand

I, ‘Sk (Nuiy) Adams’, President and Director of the (EAPNP), would like to invite all ‘Lions Club International‘ charter members from around the world to join with me, and place a hand on this project.

And, if you do…You will experience the real village life of the old Thai culture of the northeastern provinces of the modern country of Thailand.

We need more positive role models and educational sources from outside our own culture, in exchange for helping to preserve our ancient methods and ways.

Thank you, my fellow ‘Lions‘, in advance…for your kind consideration and support.

Discipline, by Sk (Nuiy) Adams

This is my ‘Ice-breaker’ speech to the Toastmaster’s Club International, Scottsdale Civic Library, Arizona USA, Mar 7th, 2005.

A good friend once told me, “Never take a short cut, unless you have plenty of time!” I found this to be true at times, and not true at other times. It is true to my friend because he grew up in the city where time was limited. Therefore he had to learn how to read the many signs and to follow directions to get to where he wanted to go. It is not true to me because I grew up in a village where time was plenty, and I could, therefore, get to where I needed to go by taking short-cuts and by following the road without discernible signs. Ladies and gentlemen, fellow toastmasters and honored guests, my name is Nuiy Adams. I was born in a poor farming village in northeast Thailand where opportunities are rare. I have been married for 25 years to my husband Tom. I also have been a stay-home mom for my two sons, David who is age 23, and Daniel who is age 21. It was 2002 after Daniel moved to Arizona to attend college at Arizona State University (ASU) when I decided to to improve my reading and writing skills. Because I also wanted to go to college to learn more English to fulfill my childhood dreams. The dream that one day I would become a high school graduate in order that I could then go to college and become a teacher. It was unfortunate that I was not able to fulfill this dream in my own country. I feel very fortunate and blessed to be living in America. I am now a GED graduate student and attending college at Scottsdale Community College (SCC). Yet, I am soon to be a 50 year old woman. There are no more short cuts left for me to take. However, I am still blessed with precious time and I realize I need to do something with my future. All my life I have loved to write, but I do not like to read. I love to listen though, but I do not like to speak. I am here to discipline myself and to learn how to follow the signs and directions of the city because I cannot imagine myself writing without reading or teaching without speaking with all of these signs and goals in the near future. I will take these skills back to teach the children of my village. I will tell the students that there is a big world out there with no short cuts for them to take. If they want to become good and productive citizens in the future, they must learn how to read the signs and follow well the directions of today. Sk (Nuiy) Adams.

My Fellow Lions Club International Members

Opening Day 2007, Ban Don Kayom School 'Khawsook' Library, Yasothon Province, NE Thailand

We need to reach beyond our business issues and address the betterment of our communities throughout the world, especially the Thai-American communities of Yasothon Province, NE Thailand.

Our aim is to enhance educational opportunites for sustainable agriculture while fully respecting and preserving the cultural heritage, customs and traditions of the villages and communities we serve, as well as promoting health and environmental awareness.

Completed Projects

Opening Day 2007, Ban Don Kayom School 'Khawsook' Library, Yasothon Province, NE Thailand

Our 1st project for the ‘Ban Don Kayom School’ district of Yasothon Province, NE Thailand was the ‘Khawsook’ library built by the ‘Earth Angel Project’ in 2007 to honor His Majesty, the ‘King of Thailand‘s 80th birthday (shown to the right).

As a result of our construction of the new ‘Khawsook’ library, the library-school complex now services (4) teachers and (33) students with two computers, a new 4 x 50 (metric) adjacent gravel road, upgraded school building doors and encompasses a size equal to approximately 17 x 22 square feet with full year round school sessions, rather than the planned closing of the school as a targeted budget cut of the province during the 2006-2007 school year.

The cost of this project was ฿250,000 Thai baht (THB) or $8,000 USD and was totally funded by the ‘Earth Angel Project’ and Saisamorn K Adams, President and Director of the Earth Angel Project Organization, Inc., an Arizona non-profit corporation DBA ‘Earth Angel Non-Profit’ and a federal 501(c)(3) organization.

Our aim is to enhance educational opportunites for sustainable agriculture while fully respecting and preserving the cultural heritage, customs and traditions of the villages and communities we serve, as well as promoting health and environmental awareness.

The library is named ‘Khawsook’ in memory of (EAPNP) President and Director, Sk Adams’ grandparents.

The picture shown below and to the center is from our 2nd library ‘Gratitude I’ built in 2009.

Opening Day 2009, Ban Yor School 'Gratitude I' Library, Yasothon Province, NE Thailand

BAN YOR SCHOOL- ‘Gratitude I Library’
Built in honor of His Majesty the ‘King of Thailand‘s 82nd birthday
9 teachers, 260 students. Size is approx. 80 x 70 sq. ft.

The cost of this project was approximately ฿800,000 Thai baht (THB) or $25,000 USD and the funding source for this project included President and Director Sk. (Nuiy) Adams, USA funding initiatives totaling $3,500 USD or ฿117,500 Thai baht (THB) as well as Thai village funding initiatives totaling approximately ฿11,000 Thai bhat (THB).

Current Projects and Future Initiatives

Our next goal is to provide a 3rd library to the people of Ban Naviang School. Our 2010 goal is to raise ฿1,000,000 Thai baht (THB) or $35,000 USD. In our projects, the villagers and community members are not passive recipients of our donations (time, funding, materials, and building-labor management), but are active participants with a stake in the success of their and our initiatives.

The picture shown below and to the center is an architectual drawing prepared by a ‘villager’ that shows the plan for our proposed 3rd library. The new library will be named ‘Gratitude II’ and is designed to enrich the people of the ‘Ban Naviang’ village school district. 
This library is scheduled to be built in December of 2010 
to honor the ‘King of Thailand‘s 83rd birthday.

Opening Day 2009, Ban Yor School 'Gratitude II' Library, Yasothon Province, NE Thailand

At the end of each project, the villagers and community members receive a great sense of accomplishment, and become very proud owners and caretakers of the facilities. Self-help also becomes a model for villages and communities at large to raise their standards of living, as well as their moral awareness for themselves and for their children.
