LifePrep Foundation has received “Prachabordi Award” today from Her Royal Highness Princess Soamsawali, organised by the Ministry of Social Development and Human Security, Thailand. The reward is given as a recognition for the outstanding work of the foundation for the marginalised children in the Thailand. LifePrep operates a Learning Centre for more than 100 migrants and Thai children, Moblie education programmes, External education programmes for students and children of inmates in Chiangmai, Bangkok and Ratchaburi provinces.
The external education programme for the children of inmates is especially close to my heart as I was inspired by my mother in implementing the programme. She used to be a Lay Judge for Juvenile and Family Court. I often had the opportunities to visit Youth Detention Centre with my mother and saw many challenges, I wanted to make differences in other people’s lives like my mother did.
This reward is an encouragement for my committed team and my work. I’m dedicating it to my mother who’s my forever inspiration.
