Around 120 young residents of Phutthamonthon District joined the “Phutthamonthon’s Youth Love Reading” event at the district’s Auditorium Hall on July 25, 2015. It was a joint project of Mahidol University International College (MUIC) in cooperation with Mahidol University (MU).
Assoc. Prof. Preecha Soontranan, MU Vice President for Policy and Planning; Assoc. Prof. Phitaya Charupoonphol, MUIC Dean; Mrs. Somluck Lunsucheep, MUIC Associate Dean for Administration and Academic Support; and Mr. Voranat Hnurot, Phutthamonthon District Sheriff were the ones behind the project, which was organized to encourage young people in the district and nearby areas to make reading a habit and also for them to appreciate the importance of knowledge.
There participants were given the opportunity to develop their reading skills and also created a network among themselves. The project also enabled both MU and MUIC and the Phutthamonthon community to work closely together in promoting learning among the district’s residents.
