AMCHAM Thai­land Char­i­ta­ble Foun­da­tion

Thai-American Business (T-AB) Magazine - - Contents -

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!

The AMCHAM Thai­land Char­i­ta­ble Foun­da­tion ( ATCF) sup­ports ed­u­ca­tion in Thai­land through its Adopt- a- School, Stu­dent Schol­ar­ship, and Teacher Fel­low­ship Pro­grams. Do­na­tions pro­vide play­grounds, wa­ter tanks and fil­tra­tion sys­tems, li­braries, com­put­ers, teacher fel­low­ships and cap­i­tal re­pairs to and con­struc­tion of schools in ru­ral Thai­land and schol­ar­ships for

dis­ad­van­taged Thai univer­sity stu­dents. Do­na­tions to the Foun­da­tion are de­ductible for Thai­land tax pur­poses.
