provides education sponsorship for students in rural areas for 12th consecutive years
On 13 January 2018, PANDORA Production, the world’s only crafting facilities in Thailand of the world’s giant jewellery brand, ‘PANDORA’, held a handover ceremony of PANDORA school building along with learning equipment, sport equipment, stationery, scholarship and playground in 12th ‘My School Project’ to Ban Non Kok Chan School, Loie province on the occasion of 2018 National Children’s Day. The management team and employee representatives led by Mr Nils Helander, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, together handed over the building and other donations to the community.
PANDORA’s My School Project has been continuously running since 2006 with an aim to improve and narrow the education gap for students in rural areas which usually lack proper educational facilities. Over the decade of the programme, PANDORA has granted school building, learning equipment and school equipment to 12 schools in 9 provinces across the country with over 1,000 students benefited from this programme. The company opens opportunity for employees who are from upcountry areas to nominate their school that they once attended to receive the grant.
This year, PANDORA has sponsored the construction of a new school building for Ban Non Kok Chan in Loei province that has run-down facilities which are not sufficient for the students. The school also lacks educational equipment as well as playground for children to play and learn.
To pay back to Thailand which is the second home of PANDORA, we have a strong determination to contribute to social development together with ethical business. PANDORA has continuously sponsored the construction of school buildings in remote areas for 12 years. We have opened opportunity for employees to propose their schools in their hometowns. This gives sentimental values to our employees as they will likely feel proud that they can help the school that they once went to. This year, we have decided to sponsor Ban Non Kok Chan school to let the students to have a proper place to learn,’ said Mr Helander.
‘I feel so pleased that PANDORA provides education sponsorship to the students and schools in rural area by giving a new building and other facilities to Ban Non Kok Chan School. This grant does not only provide the students with new and modern facilities but also distributes incomes to the community as we hire the local villagers to build this building. Most importantly, the selection criteria of the programme also encourage the alumni to think of their junior students, their teachers and their school that once educated them. This can promote the strong sense of belonging to the hometown. On behalf of the school, I wish to express my gratitude to PANDORA and I strongly believe that everything that PANDORA gives to us today will be sustainable benefit the community and students,’ said, Acting Sub Lt, Boonluea Moongtom, Ban Non Kok Chan School Director.
