The Bangkok team of MICHELIN group wishes this year to contribute as a team to collect money that will finance the educator's house building, in Maetowo.
The center welcomes about thirty students a year, all from remote villages. Their parents are farmers. They have a hard life with no stable income. Many young people hope to find work in towns and cities, but without any education or skills, they can only work in menial, low-paying jobs without any hope of advancement. The center is a place that they can not only continue their education but be trained in the ‘whole person’ skills that they will need to succeed. Their families are very involved in their education and because of this, the students are able to retain their cultural ties.
Goal of the project's success :
- Build living quarters that are not in danger of collapsing ;
- Expand the welcome center ;
- House the family in charge of the center.
The project is managed by Enfants du Mékong, a well known NGO that been acting for access to education for needy since 1958.
All donation matter, thank you for your generosity and supporting us.
The MICHELIN running team.
