Stockholm International Rotary Club joined forces with The Rotary Club of Bankorlaem in Thailand in a project to help develop the poor children in Bangkorlaem Community focusing on their basic standard of living in health, learning and living conditions.
The project’s aim was to provide materials and equipment needed to arrange a training program for children in 8 schools in the Bangkorlaem District including Futsal Tournament, Students Training, and Children’s Day Project. The project benefitted over 5,000 children in 8 public schools in the Bangkorlaem District. The children attending these schools came from the poor families of 29 Bangkorlaem communities at risk of drug misuse and other community problems. This project instructed children to be aware the dangers of drugs, promote their interest & train them in various sports and host a Children Events day.
