Pattaya students received free bicycles and mobile phones as part of a city campaign to provide necessary materials to school-age youths.
Mayor Itthiphol Kunplome presented 11 bicycles and 28 Samsung mobile phones to the area’s most deserving and/or most needy students. The project, run through the Pattaya Permanent Secretary’s Office and the city’s Education Department, was aimed at helping kids commute to school and keep in touch with parents.
The mayor also gave toasters to each of the city’s 11 public schools for food preparation.
