Club News
On January 30th, 2018 the RCRHH donated a sewing machine to Bea Baumann who represents Days for Girls organization in Thailand – see the story on an earlier Club Runner article.  On that day she expressed how difficult it was to get flannel required for making the sanitary pads in Thailand.
 
RTN Ingrid Ekert-Prinz has, for several months following the meeting, been looking for suppliers and found TTI, the largest fabric weaver in South Asia, who are the only company to supply flannel.
 

Bea Baumann, Days for Girls

On January 30, Bea Baumann accompanied by her husband Samuel came along to give an update on a recent presentation she had made about the charity Days for Girls, in which she is heavily involved. Bea recapped by explaining that due to poverty, ignorance or cultural obstacles many young women were forced to stop attending school once they began menstruating. They could be abused or ostracised as a result of this and in some cases never returned to any form of education. The charity not only assisted with sex education and personal empowerment among these girls but also provided re-useable sanitary towels to enable them to continue attending school.
 
                  
 
On 27th February 2018 and for the eigth year running, RCRHH sponsored a ‘Fun Day‘ for students at Panyanukul School close to Hua Hin. Panyanukul School is for 347 children with learning difficulties or who have a mental disability of some kind. The Fun Day included Bouncy Castles, a trampoline, plaster figurines the children could paint, a disco and various ball games. Lunch was also provided from a local restaurant and served by RCRHH members and guests. RCRHH also donated items the school identified they needed, rice, dried food, detergent, shampoo, toothpaste etc. Some of these items had been kindly given by Tesco Lotus Hua Hin and thanks must go to them.
 
   
 
A lot of members and guests participated in the event and it was deemed to be highly successful providing a lot of joy and happiness for both the children and those who helped. A great day and one to remember.
 
RCRHH sponsored a two-day English Camp for students at Nongkhon School in Hua Hin. On Friday 16th Rotarators from Webster University conducted the teaching sessions with a total of 120 grade 4-6 students and made the lessons and presentations very interactive and interesting in a way the students could grasp easily. Lunch was provided by RCRHH and served personally by members who had attended. Day two of the camp on Saturday 17th was delivered by teachers and Rotaractors from Stamford University to the same students, using slightly different techniques to keep the children interested, and who by now were becoming quite proficient in grasping basic complexities of learning English. Once again lunch was provided and served by Rotarians from RCRHH. Both days were very successful and a survey conduced with the students at the end of the two days provided a positive result and showed they would like to have more of these types of events.
