The primary goals of the home are to give underprivileged young women from remote areas educational opportunities and provide holistic personal and leadership development. This supports them to develop self-discipline, responsibility, ethics, generosity, expression of ideas and become future effective leaders. It is a non-discriminatory environment, where girls from people groups are welcomed.
Village schools are not well resourced and it is extremely rare to have a high school close by. The girls in the home are all in high school and Baan Term Phan is specifically for these girls to be able to continue their education.
Without the home, it is highly likely that they would not be continuing their education. Also, as girls from minority/tribal groups the risk of being trafficked is high without further education. The home helps teaches the girls to protect themselves, builds their self-esteem and self-worth which helps reduce the risk of abuse, trafficking, drug and alcohol addictions leading to problems in the wider community.
The girls' parents visit when they are able, depending on how far away they live and availability of transportation. As well as this, during the extended school break the girls head back to their village with their families. Baan Term Phan is not designed to be an institution or a replacement for their family, but is necessary for them to receive a better education.
