We will be welcoming Sununta Khumnunta, Secretary, Baan Jing Jai Foundation, to tell us about their orphanage and children’s home here in Pattaya.  They house around 90 children from 9 months to 18 years of age and all the children.  There are approximately 700 children that have lived at Baan Jing Jai both short term and long term.  There will also be short presentation from Bryan Williams on the subject of “The Economy - what the hell is going on?”.

It all began in 1992, when Khun Piangta Chumnoicame to Pattaya with a priest from Church of Christ, Thailand (Bangkok). They rented a small house to live in and use as a "drop-in" for street children. They sought out the many street children who hung around in Pattaya, those who tried to beg and/or sell themselves to tourists and those who had no parents or had escaped from violent homes. Khun Piangta took it upon herself to motivate these children for school and get away from the terrible environment they knew.
After two years, they moved into a larger house in Jomtien, where they began to host a few of these street children and where they also got them into the schools. In 1999 it had grown to 15 children and they looked a larger location. At this time, Khun Piangta took over as general manager and had two assistants with her at the new location. They continue to face big challenges to keep operating and are 100% dependent on voluntary donors/sponsors.

Mrs. Sununta Khumnunta is on the Baan Jing Jai committee as well as being in senior management at the Foundation. She has two bachelor degrees and attended graduate school in Switzerland. She worked in the hotel business for 15 years and as a teacher for 10 years. She has been with Baan Jing Jai since 2014.  Click here to visit their website.

Bryan Williams will also be giving a short presentation on the subject of “The Economy - what the hell is going on?” 

His interest is in putting money to work in the stock market which began around 35 years ago. In the early years he put his money into investment trusts, but as his knowledge grew, he began to invest in specific stocks. Over the years, he has gained a modest understanding of how the economy chugs along.

For the last four years or so, he has been an active contributor for Seeking Alpha, the largest website that provides data for the investor community. In the past, he has also written articles for Motley Fool, a well-known site that is relied upon by investors. In recent months he has written about the ongoing crisis in the financial sector, Artificial Intelligence, health and de dollarization.

Bryan is currently in the process of forming a PCEC Special Interest discussion group for others interested in stocks and the economy.
