Thailand-based Auto Logistics services provider, Titan-VNS, has recently completed key projects at two remote hill tribe schools in the Phitsanulok Province of Northern Thailand. The projects included building a chicken farm, fish pond and agricultural plot, along with carrying out essential repairs to existing buildings. The completion of the project was celebrated with a special lunch cooked and served by employees of Titan-VNS to the students and their teachers.
Titan-VNS has a key focus on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and has been carrying out similar activities since the company’s inception in 2012. Supporting local and rural schools is paramount within their CSR programs, with their ongoing strategy to put into practice the ‘self-sufficiency’ economic models that were first devised and implemented by His Majesty King Rama 9. A spokesperson for Titan-VNS stated, “We want to guide schools to follow in the footsteps he outlined by following his philosophy to create projects that offer benefit through long term self-sufficiency.”
As well as building the chicken farm, fish pond and agricultural plot Titan-VNS employees taught the students the management cycle of each of these resources so they have a sustainable source for eggs, fish and vegetables.
Titan-VNS Auto Logistics General Manager for Administration, Mr Boonthavee Piampinsate said, “This was a very ambitious programme; it wasn’t just about realising the projects on the ground but an awful lot of work and planning went in ahead of the event to ensure we were ready, developing specific plans, obtaining and preparing materials and ensuring people had the required knowledge of their tasks. The enthusiasm of so many of our staff to take part always makes me so proud of Titan-VNS and it was a demanding few days as everyone had to work hard and without a break to get all the tasks completed. Even more so as these schools have limited infrastructure and resources but that really reminds us just how hard everyone in remote educational locations works to ensure students receive the best possible education, the dedication of teaching staff on that frontline really opens our eyes. The reward for each of us is huge, we want to be responsible and to give back and challenge ourselves to improve both as a company and as individuals and this activity checked all those boxes – we got as much out of it as the schools did. I would also like to thank everyone who partnered and supported us to ensure this project was a success.”
