About the Phuket Has Been Good To Us Foundation
- Our Mission: Phuket Has Been Good To Us Foundation works to improve the economic opportunities and life chances of young people, by funding and implementing high quality, practical English language education in government schools on Phuket Island.
The Foundation creates vocational opportunities by developing English skills both through formal education as well as after school and non curricula activities. The Foundation teaches English to over 1200 children in three Government schools; employing qualified, fluent English-speaking teachers to provide the best possible English language education. We also run an extracurricular program, Coconut Club, for 175 children who are orphans or whose families are not able to look after them. Each day after school and on Saturdays the children come to the club to join in sports, arts and crafts programs. The aim of the organisation is to help Thai youth become capable and confident English speakers so they can secure well paid employment in Phuket’s tourism industry.
The Foundation is located on Phuket Island, Thailand. The organization is comprised of a Board of Directors, a Board of Managers, seven Teachers, a Director of Operations and marketing/administration office staff and an ever-growing group of dedicated volunteers.
We are a registered Kingdom of Thailand Charity Organization #0993000050983.
