An enriching experience at the Sangob Foundation

Within the Intensive English Programme, we have set up a community service project in collaboration with Sangob Foundation and we will visit the foundation once per term over the year.

Our first community service day was Thursday, 1 October. Located in the beautiful countryside of Mae Rim, the foundation educators taught us the basic concepts of permaculture and sustainable agriculture. They showed us how they apply permaculture themselves.

The students learned how to make compost, organic fertilizer (E.M.) and insect repellant. Not only in theory, but also in practice! They had the opportunity to walk around in the garden and to enjoy the great views.

At the end of the day, the students prepared a short presentation on what they learned and two of our students even played some Kim, a traditional Thai musical instrument.

In exchange for the activities and knowledge transfer, the Intensive English Programme donates money to the foundation. With the donations from our four community service days, the Sangob Foundation will support a local village by sending a Thai traditional music teacher, including musical instruments, who will teach music classes to the village children for one year.

Through traditional Thai music classes, the foundation wants to offer education, which is the basis of a critical thinking, sustainable and healthy society.

Congratulations to everyone for participating actively and thank you to Lauren, Laurent and Manuelo from the Sangob Foundation for sharing your knowledge.
