Hyatt Regency Hua Hin and Chonlapratan Pranburi School (Baan Wang Pla)
Cholapratharn Pranburi School (Baan Wang Pla Branch) is located in a remote area at the slopes of the mountain in Pranburi Dam, about 52 km. from Hua Hin city center and it has been founded since 1989. The school provides free education and lunch for the children from impoverished families in the area. They cannot afford to send the children to other schools in town due to transportation costs, school fees and other expenses on equipment. So Baan Wang Pla School was set up close to the community to accommodate the needs of those families. Now the school hosts 25 children between the ages of four to 12 whom taken care by two devoted teachers.
The team at the Hyatt Regency Hua Hin & The Barai has been supporting Cholapratharn Pranburi School (Baan Wang Pla Branch) in the past seven years by arranging the trip to teach English language, arts and personal hygiene once a month. The team members host lunch and donate supplies such as dried food, milk, utensils, etc. The hotel helped organize fundraising activity to purchase a new boat, uniforms and books for the school.
The Hyatt Community Grant will allow the school to update its kitchen utensils and roll out long-term hygiene program at the school to improve the students’ personal health and wellness.
