Rotary International is all about COMMUNITIES: 1.2 million men and women of all ages and backgrounds around the world volunteering to support COMMUNITIES, both locally and internationally. And Rotary clubs are dynamic COMMUNITIES themselves – like-minded people with common aims who use their skills and energy to support each other. If you’d like to make new friends and business contacts while giving something back to your community, then contact us today – you’ll find out just how rewarding this can be.
This project has proved to make a difference to the lives of many children in The Bangkorlaem District of Bangkok and has been sustained over many years thanks to the continued involvement of Rotary clubs from all over the world. Our club has therefore recently taken the decision to participate in the project again in 2017-2018.
This project aims to provide materials and equipment needed to arrange the training program for children in 8 schools in the Bangkorlaem District. The program will include:-
A Futsal Tournament,
Drugs Awareness sessions
A Speech Contest and
A Children’s Day event.
This project will benefit over 5,000 children living in 29 Bangkorlaem communities. The schools involved are:-
Wat Ratchasingkorn School
Wat Phai Ngern School
Wat Sai School
Wat Chan Nai School
Wat Lad Bua Kao School
Wat Chan Nok School
Wat Bangklo Nok School
Raksa Rachawit School.
Bangkorlaem is a poor area of Bangkok where drug abuse and other associated community problems are prevalent. This project will instruct children on the dangers associated with drug taking, move their interests towards sports; Futsal and train them in Leadership and Presenting/Speaking to an audience. Finally, and to mark the end of the project program, a Children’s day event will be held.
Below are some photos taken from previous years projects.
