I, with the help of few friends have initiated a Charity Project titled ‘Give a Little, Make the Difference’ in May last year. The project is intended at collecting the second hand clothes and shoes from the university students and distributes it to the people in the remote villages of northern region of Thailand. So this project not only helps the weaker section of the society but also promotes the concept of Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
Now in existence for over a year, “Give a Little, Make the Difference”, continues to strive to expand our program and support to the underprivileged. It is our mission to enhance the dignity and quality of life of individuals and families by providing basic necessities such as clothe and shoes. In order to meet our mission to life the disadvantaged, we rely on the generosity of the individuals and businesses for support. We have also organized a #icebucketchallenge to raise fund for the donation. Thailand’s prominent TV Channel, Voice TV and other local news agencies filmed the fund raising event.

We have collected more than 700 KG of used clothes/shoes/kitchen utensils/households items and donated to the children and people in the remote villages of northern Thailand on 29 – 31 August 2014. The Bhutanese students who completed their courses donated most of the kitchen utensils. The clothes and shoes were collect from Shinawatra University staff and students. Other donations include books and stationaries to Save Haven Orphanage, Save Haven Learning Center and Sophia Wisdom Learning Center and medicines (drugs) to the local Basic Health Unit (BHU). In the past few months this BHU lost the life of several patients due to shortage of the drugs.
