YAMAHATSU, THAILAND: Henkel AG & Company said that its employees from the beauty care plant in Yamahatsu, Thailand visited the Ban Pa Por Sahapattanasueksa School in Northeast Thailand to contribute computers and teach the children about sustainability and social issues.

The school is located in a less developed area of Thailand and hence, children do not have the same opportunities as children in the city would. It was found that this school had only one computer in working condition. In order to empower children with modern technology and advance their access to information, Henkel donated 15 second-hand computers to the school.

The team also spent time giving basic computer educations to the children and teaching them about sustainability. In addition, they raised awareness about social issues such as safety and drug protection. The Henkel colleagues concluded their day by sharing an enjoyable lunch with the children.

“The advantage of this development is to give less privileged children the same opportunities to learn. It provides the children with a new experience and gives them a chance to study beyond their classrooms,” said Ben van den Hende, corporate VP, supply chain, beauty care, Henkel Asia-Pacific.
