Microsoft (Thailand) Co, Ltd, represented by Ms Anne Lepissier, General Manager, Consumer and Devices Sales, Microsoft South East Asia, Korea & India, along with more than 60 volunteers from South Korea and India offices, has participated in the bicycle assembly activity, part of their support of World Vision Foundation of Thailand (WVFT)’s Bikes for Kids Project.
Aside from the main event, Ms Anne Lepissier and the staff from Microsoft, along with the pupils, have enjoyed participating in an icebreaking activity which allows both the givers and the receivers to get to know one another before joining hands in putting together the bikes. After finished assembling the bicycles, Ms Anne Lepissier and the volunteers have handed the 16 bikes with 16 helmets to the delegate who represents the directors of the three school, namely, Ban Tung Kled, Pu Sawan, and Huai Kwang Jing Schools, which are located in WVFT’s Kaeng Krachan Project, Phetburi province. The bicycles will make life easier for the pupils who live far away as they can use the bicycles in travelling to school and everyday activities. Mr Niran Limkitti, Public Engagement Group Department Manager, WVFT, has also joined the handover.
‘Microsoft’s vision is to empower every person on the planet to achieve more. And, of course, these are technology, devices, and safe platforms for all children in the world to work and study safely. Today, we’ve done activities with World Vision and we were thrilled on our partnership and ability to build 16 bikes and provide 16 helmets to kids from outside Bangkok. So, from now on they can ride safely to school and share with their friends’, Ms Anne Lepissier revealed her feeling after having joined the event.
It is the second time of the year that Microsoft has supported WVFT’s Bikes for Kids Project and broaden educational opportunities of the pupils in remote areas.
