TITAN-VNS UNDERTAKES PROJECTS IN REMOTE NORTHERN SCHOOLS

Staff from Titan-VNS Auto Logistics Co. Ltd. (“Titan-VNS”) have just completed the latest activities in our on-going programme of providing support to school development in remote locations where we aim to implement sustainable full-cycle projects to the positive benefit of the school and students going forward.

This time the projects took place in Phitsanulok Province with a focus on two remote schools that cater for hilltribe students. The activities included creating a chicken farm, fish pond and agricultural plot as well as constructing new facilities and repairs to existing structures while finally incorporating a fun element as our staff cooked and served lunch to the students and teachers.

We have been successfully implementing this strategy annually since the incorporation of the Company in 2012 as a core part of our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities, which we see as fundamental to our values. Titan-VNS management and staff understand the importance of being ‘good citizens’ and returning value to the country where we can make a difference.

All the initiatives of our CSR programmes are enthusiastically embraced by our more than one thousand staff which has the added benefit of ‘team building’ and also, not least, in making new face to face connections in a company that operates through multiple locations across Thailand.

Supporting school development has been a key driver of our CSR programmes and our strategy in this area has been to put into practice the ‘self-sufficiency’ economic models that were developed and brought to the nation by His Majesty the King Rama 9. We want to guide schools to follow in the footsteps he outlined by following his philosophy to create projects that offer benefit through long term self-sufficiency.

Adhering to HM King Rama 9’s ‘Self-Sufficiency Economic’ sciences we initiate ‘school farm’ projects that reap immediate benefits – namely that the students can grow and then eat (as well as sell in order to re sustain the cycle) the products that they have produced.

This year’s opening projects, which kicked off our CSR programme for 2019, focused on two remote schools located in the Phu Hin Rong Kla National Park, which straddles the Loei, Phitsanulok and Phetchabun Provinces close to the Laos border and is home to the forested Luang Prabang Mountain Range.

The educational establishments, both in Phitsanulok Province’s Nakorn Thai District, were namely Ban Huai Nam Sai School, which teaches 140 hill tribe students of 1-6+3 Grade, and Ban Huai Nam Sai Rong Kla Vidhaya Branch School which has 105 students in 1-6 Grade, all of which are from the Mhung hill tribe.

The sustainability projects focused on constructing a chicken run with a ‘hen house’, a fish pond and an agricultural plot as well as teaching the management cycle of each of these resources so that students have a sustainable source for eggs, fish and vegetables that they can then cook for their lunch.

Alongside this, we also built a new toilet for students and teachers as well as fitting a new roof to the school canteen which had many leaks.

Finally, to maintain and keep to our objective of caring and sharing, as well as to provide a ‘fun’ and serving element to the projects, our staff hosted the students, teachers and their families for lunch, cooking them their favourite foods with pork noodles, steamed chicken with rice and ice cream being amongst the most popular serving choices.

This project was realised in conjunction with Albatross Logistics Co., Ltd.

Mr Boonthavee Piampinsate (General Manager, Administration, Titan-VNS Auto Logistics Co. Ltd.) said: “This was a very ambitious programme; it wasn't just about realising the projects on the ground but an awful lot of work and planning went in ahead of the event to ensure we were ready, developing specific plans, obtaining and preparing materials and ensuring people had the required knowledge of their tasks. The enthusiasm of so many of our staff to take part always makes me so proud of Titan-VNS and it was a demanding few days as everyone had to work hard and without a break to get all the tasks completed. Even more so as these schools have limited infrastructure and resources but that really reminds us just how hard everyone in remote educational locations work to ensure students receive the best possible education, the dedication of teaching staff on that frontline really opens our eyes. The reward for each of us is huge, we want to be responsible and to give back and challenge ourselves to improve both as a company and as individuals and this activity checked all those boxes – we got as much out of it as the schools did. I would also like to thank everyone who partnered and supported us to ensure this project was a success.”
