You can’t help being impressed after a visit to the Dek Dee kindergarten in Ban Chang. For a number of years, school manager Porn and her staff have been caring for about 40 to 50 children, all in the age group from two to five. Most of the children come from very low income and single parent families and at Dek Dee, they are given the opportunity to study and being cared for during their parents’ working hours in a safe and secure environment.
The Pattaya International Ladies Club has been instrumental in supporting the school through charitable contributions. Recently, Hans Schoof-Hetroys and Thomas Serbe, representatives from Dow Chemicals, visited the very well organised kindergarten together with PILC president Ann Winfield, welfare chair Helle Rantsen, and club member Gillian Thom, whose sister founded the kindergarten.
Children at Dek Dee thank Dow Chemical and PILC for their generous donation.
PILC has been supporting Dek Dee for a number of years and generous donations from Dow Chemicals has made it possible to continue the much needed support.
The staff working in Dek Dee ensures that the group of preschool children receive the very best educational back ground before their start in primary school.
All the children and the staff say a big thank you to Dow Chemicals and PILC and hope that they will visit again soon.
