What is Pang Ma O?

Pang-Ma-O is a small Karen village on the mountains where there are 17 houses and less than 15 kids. It takes around 1 hour and a half from Baan Khagee Tattoo Studio to get there. The road is not so friendly for your tires at all, and almost impossible to reach when it rains since the whole road will turn into the mud pool. 

The locals live really simple lives over there. They grow rice and raise animals themselves, and occasionally searching through the forest or hunt for food. Men usually go out for work during the day, and women stay home taking care of household chores. 

Education is at minimal degree, as there is no school at their own village. There are only a few kids who go to school, which is at 2 villages away, and they need to stay at the school throughout the weekday since it's simply too far to go back and forth everyday.

What have I been doing?

For each 1 tattoo you get at Baan Khagee Tattoo, will be 1 hour I dedicate my time giving the kids education. 
I have been focusing on art which is what I am good at 🤓 They seemed to enjoy it very much too.
Apart from that, we have also learned about general knowledge, English, teamwork and of course a lot of games 🤩

What am I aiming?

The simple arts, simple games, and simple knowledge that we used to have when we were kids, are simply not available very much there. So I would like to give them that and see them having good time 💚💛🧡 

Big thanks from me and the kids
