Gift of Technology helps Phuket Charity Run Smoother

Gift of Technology helps Phuket Charity Run SmootherThe Kamala office of the Phuket has Been Good To Us Foundation was recently the site of yet another demonstration of corporate altruism when Pegas Touristik donated three brand new computers.

“Pegas Touristik is one of our newest supporters who came on board after meeting with one of our wonderful volunteers,” said Tina Hall, Director of Operations.  “The donation from Pegas of these brand new desktops will help us with productivity as we were previously losing so much precious time grappling with old technology,” said Hall.

The Foundation relies heavily on local contributions, both monetary and in-kind, to ensure that the English language programs delivered to more than 900 children in two local Thai government schools continue uninterrupted. The donation from Pegas, a travel company based in the Ukraine with offices in Central Festival, will streamline operations considerably.

Phuket Has Been Good To Us Foundation is a Thai registered charity, which aims to foster vocational opportunities for Thai children through English.  English is taught to more than 900 children in two government schools in Phuket, including 150 orphans who reside at the school.  The goal is to provide the best possible English language education by placing qualified, fluent English speaking teachers in classrooms.  The programs help Thai youth become capable and confident English speakers so that they can secure well-paid employment.
