AMCHAM Thailand Charitable Foundation
The Young Professionals Committee ( YPC) plays a key role as a recruiting tool for the Chamber, educating people about the Chamber’s activities and encouraging new members to join. The Committee advocates socially responsible activities by raising funds for AMCHAM Adopt- a- School program at their monthly social networking nights.
This year, YPC has decided to donate funds in the amount of Baht 247,500 towards two projects at Banmaiputtana School, Sanklaburi- Kanchanaburi Province: an agriculture project focusing on organic farming, and installing a brain based learning ( BBL) playground. Once the project is fully completed, the school would usually host a dedication ceremony to thank donors. Members are welcome to attend the dedication ceremony and get a chance to be involved in this wonderful experience with the opportunity to be able to interact with the students and get to see why we do what we do. Please stay tuned as we will soon announce when the upcoming dedication would be held!
