“This school is a game changer and a mind changer […] it changes the lives of children, empowering them to take matters into their own hands, and make a change,” we recently wrote in our profile of Yaowawit school in Kapong, Phang Nga. And now this game-changing school needs your help.
In late August 2018, landslides caused by heavy rains hit Yaowawit. Plummeting land, rocks, and debris took down most of the grounds the school buildings once stood firmly upon. The school activities and the lives of 144 children, 50 teachers and caretakers who make up the Yaowawit family have been disrupted.
In order to resume daily learning activities and education services to the children and local community three of the school buildings, the dormitory and learning facilities need to be rebuilt. And you can help make it happen. And not just with your money. Here is how:
Charitable Act at Check-in or Check-Out
Do you run a hotel? And Airbnb? A guesthouse? World travellers have grown accustomed to being asked to make donations when checking in or out at hotels. The contributions can be as small as 1 USD and completely voluntary. With a small donation, the guests get a sense of community and feel that they leave a piece of them behind when leaving Phuket.
Charity Dinner at your F&B Outlet
Phuket restaurant owners make their guests happy on an everyday basis. And now they can do more, by organizing a food event with the proceeds going towards supporting a specific, local cause. This is a good opportunity to engage your patrons with your CSR mission.
Donation Box at Cashier Counters
Business owners know well that a small change can make a big difference. Yaowawit donation box can be placed at cashier counters for customers to make a small gesture to help children in need, rebuild their school and their lives. It literally serves as a way to put your small change to big use.
