Choochart Supkerd, 63, who studies at the School for the Elderly in Chiang Rak Noi subdistrict, poses for a photograph inside his house in Ayutthaya, Thailand, March 28, 2018. Supkerd attended a 12-week course at the school which he said was a welcome relief from his "stressful" life. "It's stressful just living day by day. I don't have an income," he said. "I receive disabled welfare of 800 baht ($25.60/month)." The school was a place for him to make friends. "I will probably go back to feeling lonely sometimes but I'm also proud of this, of gaining some knowledge in class that would be useful for my daily life."
