|My name is Pit. I'm a tourguide in Thailand for more than 10 years and a volunteer of "Duangtawan Santiparp Foundation or The Sun of Peace Foundation"
Duang Tawan Santiparb Foundation foresees the significance in developing
life quality of people, so we cooperate with Pandit Lanna Association to run a
charity project that creates promising hill tribe leaders who are female graduates (Tawan Bon Doi Project).
Thai hill tribe youths who live in the high elevation mountain
areas are mostly in the remote area where formal education
system is not available. This results them to live their lives without
proper knowledge and ethics. Consequently, many
national problems occur such as deforestation, drug and human
trafficking. We can say that, without strong and uncompromising supports
on their education,the Thai hill tribe may not be able to achieve good
life quality and prone to illegal activities which affect the society as
well as national security.
Due to the aforesaid reason, Pandit Lanna Association has
joined hand in hand with the Regional Buddhist Missionary Program
to launch the project to create hill tribe leaders who are female
graduates or Tawan BonDoi Project in order to
provide educational opportunity to female hill tribe youths and
produce more teachers who are capable of teaching academic knowledge and
morality at local mountain schools. This will lessen the problem
of teacher shortage at mountain schools because the female graduates
will be encouraged to return to their home in
order to develop their community in term of both academic and
ethical aspects for the benefit of hill tribes careers and
community development and strengthening furthermore.
In order to raise fund for our charitable activities, the
organizing committee which includes the Duang Tawan Santiparb
Foundation, Pandit Lanna Association, and
Dhudongkasatan Lanna or Lanna Meditation Sanctuary will organize
Yee Peng Lanna International for the second time in 2555 BE
(2012) in order to proceed our
income to Tawan Bon Doi Project.
The organizing committee would like to show our deep
appreciation to all honorable guests who kindly assist us in
educating female hill tribe youths and generously make donation to
support the project by buying tickets to attend Yeepeng Lanna
