As part of its on-going commitment to CSR and supporting children from poor areas, a team of 9 people from Hansar Samui flew to Chiang Mai earlier this month to extend their charitable reach to the north of Thailand.

The group visited 6 schools with a total of 220 students and donated school bags, school supplies and money to provide a scholarship for the best student in each school. The parents of many of the children in these schools are farmers who work in the tea plantations.

The schools visited were Mae Mam School, Mae Krai School, Pa Pea School, Bang Pa Kuai School, Mae Lao School and Mae Sae School.

Hansar Samui also adopted the Mae Mam School and will support them with monthly financial assistance. The children at this school come from very poor families and have to walk 3 km to the school. Sometimes they need to stay overnight at the school due to bad weather.

Indra Budiman Hansar Hotels & Resorts CEO said, "I always strive to find new places that are in  need. As we have already done a lot in the south, I wanted to spread our program to other provinces in Thailand. The schools in the north are badly in need of our help when compared to those in the south which mostly have better facilities and logistics. In Hansar Samui we believe in our childrens future, which is why we created the elephant program which supportd students who are in need of school supplies. If we do not start the program, then who would pilot this initiative? Better we start now then later. We will continue to provide further donations to the children in the north of Thailand, as we have done in the south."
