Elephant Hills Corporate Responsibility Projects
 Students from Baan Yaplong School, grades 4 to 6 worked hard and practiced their traditional basket weaving skills for one full school term. With the help of the talented elderly from the village, they refined their methods and perfected the tiny details of their basketry. Eventually they accomplished first place in the Southern Thailand’s students’ art and crafts competition. This amazing result inspired them to try out their skills in basket weaving at the national contest held in Bangkok earlier this spring.

Elephant Hills Children’s Project was proud to help sponsoring the trip for the skillful students. They traveled all the way to the capital to compete in national level for the first time in the school’s history. The teacher was very excited to share the news after the competition; Baan Yaplong School had reached 5th place in students’ basket weaving! To even have a chance to take part in this respected competition and travel to Bangkok was a dream come true to the students, but they were extremely happy to return with such a brilliant outcome.

We are very pleased to have been able to contribute to the traditional craftsmanship in Khao Sok area through our Children’s Project. We believe that this will further encourage the local children to appreciate these ancient skills and keep learning them from their grandparents. With the donations made by our wonderful visitors, we can help the local schools and communities to cherish the abundance of natural material and ensure that the techniques of turning it into beautiful and useful handicrafts continue to be passed down through generations.
