Trade-off is our way of plugging in with others in need, practically, supportively…Using our various career skills to aid, educate and further others who desperately require a hand-up rather than just a hand-out!
Sammy is a trained electrician, teacher and ordained minister and Kylie has 3 decades experience as a registered nurse with diverse tribal people groups in different settings, notably Australia (SA/NT), Saudi Arabia and USA.
February 2019 we will return to Mae Sot, Thailand, and run three trade schools, a level 1 electrical one as usual, a level 2 electrical, and a first response trauma skills school. This will incorporate basic life support, first aid, wound management, and other pertinent skills like BP assessment, stroke awareness, and whatever else crops up out in the field! This is being achieved in partnership with http://thecharisproject.org and http://www.thearkinitiative.org. Check 'em out!
Please contact us for any questions or about donating to what we do. We have gathered wound care supplies, IV cannulas and space blankets, also have purchased CPR mannikins to take with us. We will be buying much of our equipment and supplies for both schools in Mae Sot and are grateful for the assistance we have been given to purchase: electrical tools, tool belts, materials, BP sphygmomanometers, stethoscopes, tourniquets, scissors, dressing packs etc.
We are also cultivating an environment to teach song writing, music production – arrangement/recording and performance, and hope to record local original music whilst there.
