Amari Hotels and Resorts first started the Baht for a Better Life scheme in 1995. Since then, coins donated by guests have been collected and used for furthering the education of children in Thailand.
Amari Hotels and Resorts currently sponsors twelve students through the Duang Prateep Foundation, which supports the slum children of Klong Toey. In addition funds are provided for the Amari School in Na Chompoo, Udorn Thani.
Students currently sponsored through the Klong Toey project include Boonchai Patimakorn and Vanida Aksorn who are in High School. Boonchai dreams of becoming a teacher whilst Vanida hopes that she will be able to be a doctor. These dreams may become a reality with the ongoing support given by the sponsorship program.
