Bangkok, Thailand: School & Community Outreach
Throughout the year, our team continued providing support to their local community – in particular schools and hospitals - through a variety of activities and initiatives including scholarships, provision of equipment and resources, planting trees, donating blood, training and more.
A team of employees from our production facility in Thailand organised an event to support the local Wat Klang Wongmamee School and community.
One hundred and fourteen school children gathered for the event and the Benchmark team shared their knowledge on health, safety and the environment before presenting scholarships to eight of the students. The team also donated stationery and a selection of sports equipment to the school. The students then collected waste from around the premises and segregate it into relevant waste streams.
After lunch with the children and local residents, the Benchmark team joined forces with their contractor and members of the local community to repair the school roof and canteen walls with waste wood and paint also donated by our site in Thailand.
