Slide background
“Everyone should be able to eat to his fill, at least for one day.
There should be at least one day when hospitals see no one admitted due to violence.
By doing selfless service for at least one day, everyone should help the poor and needy.”

  • Location: M.1 Bandontang, Namuang, Koh Samui, Surat Tahni 84140 Thailand
  • In 1917 they turned the sermon hall of a monastery into a school.
  • In 1930 they built their first schoolhouse (two-story).
  • The school provides kindergarten and primary education.
  • 208 students comprise the student body.

As part of our ongoing community service work on Koh Samui, Centered Foundation encourages our students and the local community to work together in this karma yoga initiative. The school facility is as important as early education is to make the children feel motivated and happy to grow and learn. Since it receives very little funds from the government to be able to do the much needed improvements and repairs, the school is in very poor condition. However, it has a lot of potential to be a welcoming, loving place for children. And we are grateful to be in a position to help.

– Project timeline: August – November 2008

As part of our on going community service work on Koh Samui, Centered Foundation encourages the help of our students and local people to work together in this selfless service common goal.

The importance of early education is as important as the facility to make the children feel motivated and happy as the place to grow and learn.

The school is in poor condition as it receives very little funds from the government to be able to do the much need improvements to the school. The school has a lot of potential to be a welcoming loving place for the children.

There are only 3 toilets in the entire school! It needs complete renovation and upgrade. Our plan is to add 4 more toilets for the kids in the coming months.

There is no sink for the kids to wash their hands. We want to add 3 sinks to this toilet area.

This building is used for the children to brush their teeth and wash hands, but it currently does not have running water. The pipes and faucets will need to be upgraded.

The dining hall needs some renovation. The tables and chairs needs some repaired and painted. The fans are broken and more new fans is needed.

The sports area (basket ball court and foot ball field) needs some painting and proper netting. The children play area needs to be repaired and painted.

The library is in need of books and learning tools. There is only one working computer.

We kindly appreciate your kind support and generosity. We will kick off our project on Sunday August 31 @ 2:30 pm. You are invited to come by the school.

Thank you for your kindness – Jutima and Paul (Samahita Retreat)
