WVFT partners with Sustainable Energy Foundation in Rehabilitating Schools Damaged by Southern Flooding (Read in English)

Once again World Vision Foundation of Thailand (WVFT) has received support from Sustainable Energy Foundation, especially during times of disasters which affected children, youth and families whether in Thailand or abroad.

Recently Dr Bunjongsek Supsopha, WVFT’s Marketing and Fundraising Director received 100,000 Baht from Dr Churit Jitveera, Secretary-General of Sustainable Energy Foundation in a joint effort to repair and rehabilitate schools damaged by the flooding in southern Thailand from the end of 2016 until early 2017.

The recent southern flooding affected more than 7,000 sponsored children in WVFT’s 7 project areas in the provinces of Nakhon Si Thammarat, Phatthalung, Surat Thani and Songkhla. As for the rehabilitation work, which began after the water has receded, focuses on 3 areas including education, livelihood and sanitation. Education entails the repairs of school and preparing the students to resume their schooling in a safe environment. Livelihood involves restoring people’s occupations, while sanitation is about promoting good hygiene in households, particularly clean water for drinking and everyday uses.

In addition to providing education opportunities for children and youth, Sustainable Energy Foundation also supports the education, promotion and development of energy technology, alternative energy, community energy as well as sustainable conservation of natural resources and environment. It emphasises knowledge building as a tool to be adapted to various project areas through the foundation’s work as well as through other institutions and charity organisations.
