The Pracharat Housing Project launched by Habitat for Humanity aims to provide people with safe, affordable residences and help the local community address economic and social challenges.
Cargill has donated close to US$1.7 million for Habitat for Humanity’s projects since 1996, and so far, 147 homes have been built in different communities across the country, especially in the Central and Northeast regions.
Watcharapon Prasopkiatpoka, country representative of Cargill Thailand, said the firm has been conducting corporate social responsibility activities in line with the needs of local communities. “Our vision is to give back to communities. We know that a simple, decent and affordable house can have a strong impact on the health and education of children, as well as the well-being and financial success of a family, which in turn impacts a community positively.”
Apart from building homes, the company plans to build a school canteen in Korat province in February next year. The company has provided financial support for the construction of a number of hospital canteens, public libraries and school playgrounds in the province. It has also provided supplies, including books, stationeries and sports equipment for local schools.
