Review for Pratthanadee Foundation , Northboro, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I first came to know Goodwill Group Foundation from an article in a local English newspaper many years back when I was looking for a place that I could use my ability to make a good cause. Soon after that, I contacted GGF and talked with the manager, Khun Beer, at that time, about my interest in being a volunteer for the Foundation. I was told that a English teaching volunteer was required to commit his time of teaching at least for a period of 10 weeks for one class. It was quite a commitment to make for me who had not been done anything like this before. But I gave it a try in 1995 and since then I have built a long relationship with GGF friends and my students and still enjoy teaching there whenever they need a substitute teacher.

Along the course of my involvement with GGF, I have come to learn and seen it on the first hand about their main objective. That is to provide the underprivileged women with English language, computer, and other occupation-related skills for their career development and advancement.

Every time I visit the Foundation either for a teaching class or just a drop-by, I always see old and new faces of students coming to classes and feel the atmosphere of enthusiasm among my students despite that many of them have to work fulltime 6 days a week. This, I believe, is because they believe that after their hardworking in the class, there will be many good opportunities waiting for them ahead. :)

Recently I was told that the Foundation was setting up its second office in an upcountry of Thailand to serve the students there. I think it is a good initiative and believe that with the second office, people in that rural area and its vicinities will benefit from this as much as those in Bangkok.

So, after all of what I wrote above, I just want to say that if you are looking for a place to make a charity. I think GGW could be one of your choices. Any kind supports from you would make a difference to them and its students.

PS: If you don’t have time to help teaching people how to catch a fish, GGF will do that for you and they always need your kind supports! :)

Have a good day everyone & Enjoy your life!

Best,
