The MORE Project Supports Children at School in Mae Hong Son, Thailand
In Thailand, the MORE Project will work to support a school in the mountains of Mae Hong Son.
Luang Paw Cheyote, the founder of the school, was a MonaVie distributor and monk who dedicated his life to supporting and educating more than 600 children in Thailand. He passed away recently and was honored at the Asia Pacific Conference for his selfless efforts.
The school provides shelter, food, life values, education, and practical agriculture skills for more than 100 children from tribal families in the Mae Hong Son region. The school is based on self-sustaining principles and has organic rice and mushroom farms to not only raise money but to teach the children farming practices.
The MORE Project also has plans to help out similar schools throughout Thailand in 2012. Before the Asia Pacific Conference, 40 MonaVie distributors traveled four hours by bus to volunteer at a residential school in Korat that serves more than 500 impoverished children and teens. Without this school, these children would have no access to education. The MORE Project donated money to help the school buy two large telescopes for their science program.
