Kanyarat Khonkrit (R) helps her mother Phoem Khonkrit, 91, get dressed for school at their house in Ayutthaya, Thailand, March 14, 2018. They both study at the School for the Elderly in Chiang Rak Noi subdistrict. "The school is really good. From someone who doesn't really get to socialise or meet anybody, it opened up our world, got us socialising and doesn't make us feel lonely. My mum is also getting better, she was too attached to the house before and refused to go out anywhere," said Khonkrit. "After finishing school, we had more friends and still keep in contact with them." REUTERS/Athit Perawongmetha SEARCH "PERAWONGMETHA SCHOOL" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
