Review for Pratthanadee Foundation , Northboro, MA, USA
My name is Suppapong. I have been doing an English teaching volunteer for Pratthanadee Foundation for a few months now. Professionally, I work full time as a Human Resources Manager in Bangkok. I had always looked for an opportunity to use my strengths to help better Thai society. Pratthanadee Foundation helps me fulfill my calling.
I teach a class of about 10 students who are women with little knowledge of English. The class is 3 hours on Sunday. Our lessons started with basic English alphabets and numbers. It then progress through basic everyday English usage such as greeting, saying good bye, introduce friends, etc. We are now moving toward more and more advanced lessons. I find doing this teaching volunteer very fulfilling. My students are very enthusiastic. They really want to be better in English. And they work very hard. It is very rewarding seeing students apply what they learn in their work and personal life.
The staffs at Pratthanadee Foundation are also very friendly, helpful, and supportive. The foundation not only provide English lesson, but also other useful training such as life planning, and basic rights that women should know. They even provide a personal mentor that women who participate in the program can turn to whenever they need someone to consult with.
Again, thanks so much for giving me an opportunity to do the volunteer work here. Giving the fact that many of Thai women are classified as so-called under privilege, what the Pratthanadee Foundation does directly contribute to the social development of Thailand. I learn that many women who complete the program with the Foundation become successful in their professional career. They can earn more, and can apply what they learn from the program to improve the quality of their life as a whole.
I can’t wait to see this free life-changing program and initiative reach out to a larger number of under privilege women and girls in Thailand.
