2017 Outfit Fund – $6000/yr : 

  • Phuket is a beautiful tourist location. Because of this, the cost of living is higher than some other locations. While we receive a living allowance through the Global Advance Fund (GAF) we are given permission to raise an additional $6000/yr to help with living costs. This is not salary. This fund will help with clothing, children’s schooling c0sts, supplies, unexpected costs, etc.
    1. April Update ~ $4000 raised for 2017. Thank you!
