Cu and Hang

The TTM School would never succeed without your love and care for the students.

These dear friends generously offer of themselves and their home.  Their living room many times becomes a classroom. 

Many kids from the orphanage  consider this their second home.

The school you see pictured in many photo's is actually built onto the front of their original home.
