Activities in January – March 2012
(1) Post-Flood Relief Work Project
As a On-going work after the Greatest Thai Flood in 2011, the Foundation sought to raise funds for the Flood Victims for Repair Work, in the post-flood period. Altogether, 20 families received aid, and they come from various provinces namely, in Bangkok, Nonthaburi, Chainat, Phitsanuloke, RoiEt, Ayutthaya and Nakhon Sawan.
(2) Feeding the Family Project
The Foundation distributed Life-paks (consisting of rice packs, dried foodstuffs, milk and pampers) to families of the disabled and the needy, who lack breadwinners, in the Slum Community of Klong Toey in Bangkok.
3) The Little Entrepreneur Project
The Hilltribe students in the Sahasartsuksa School, utilised their spare time to sew traditional hilltribe embroideries, which were converted into pencil cases, key-chains, etc.. The Foundation, helped to market these products so that the students may have pocket money to buy their daily needs. In this way, the students also learnt to preserve their traditions in their various hill-tribe cultures as well.
(4) Scholarship Grants for the “S.M.A.R.T. Scheme” Savings House Contest
The Foundation conducted a Contest for Youths and Kids, so as to grant scholarships to winners. The purpose of the contest was to instill in Youths and Children, the benefits of Giving, Savings and Using money to increase personal financial intelligience and awareness of one’s social responsibilities to the less privileged. Contestants came from both Bangkok and upcountry provinces, and 12 grants were given out, together with 27 consolation prizes.
