Around 50 Thai and exchange students from Mahidol University International College (MUIC) taught basic English skills to pupils of a Buddhist temple school in Nakhon Pathom province under MUIC’s “Temple School Relations for Wisdom of Community” project. The student club Rakkaew Mahidol University also collaborated by performing renovation work in the school library and donating bicycles under its “We Connect” project, co-sponsored by Mahidol University’s Faculty of Engineering.
Assoc. Prof. Dr. Phitaya Charupoonphol, MUIC Dean, awarded certificates in recognition of the student volunteers’ contributions during ceremonies held at Watthaiyawas School, a Buddhist temple school located in Nakhon Chaisri district, on December 2, 2015.
The project is part of MUIC’s university social responsibility (USR) activities designed to help neighboring communities and develop a sense of responsibility among MUIC students.
