Thanks to 2007 donations...


During our 3rd  mission in Thailand (Nov-dec 2008), AMATIS and it's local partners USUI & Thai Shimizu have inaugurated a new building for Ban klongudomsuk school.

This underprivileged school is located in the eastern Province of Chachoengsao.



Focus on Geography ...

Chachoengsao is 80 kilometer far from Bangkok, with the area of 5,351 square kilometers. The local administration is divided into 10 Amphoe (district) and 1 King Amphoe (sub-district), namely: Amphoe Muang, Bang Khla, Bang Nam Prieo, Bang Pakong, Ban Pho, Phanom Sarakham, Sanam Chai Khet, Plaeng Yao, Ratchasan, Tha Takiap, and King Amphoe Khlong Khuean.


In general, the areas are plains with forests along the sea coast. In the east, in Amphoe Sanam Chai Khet, the areas contain highlands and mountains, with the attitude of 300 meters.

Its fertility is due to Bang Pakong River. It is an important venue for agricultural products in the Central Region, with mango as the most popular fruit of the province. Moreover, it is the location of the sacred Phra Phutthasothon Buddha image.

History in a few words

Derived from Khmer, the name Chachoengsao means deep canal.
The history of Chachoengsao dated back from the Ayutthaya Period during the reign of King Phra Borom Tri Lokkanat. Most people live along the banks of Bang Pakong River and canals. Phra Phutthasothon or Luang Pho Sothon is the center of beliefs and faith. In the past, Chachoengsao was a small town, and was upgraded to a province in 1916.


Our project

Thanks to our charity concert by end of 2007 in Paris  and relying on other generous french donators, Amatis has contributed to the construction of a new  building of 25 square meters.

For this little school of 50 children, this new infrastructure will be split in a nursery and a library.  This mission was also possible thanks to Thai Shimizu and Usui  support .

Located in Amata area in Chon Buri, they have supervised this project in coordination with our french association.
