New Autism Learning Centre
To support the equality of life and health of children and adults with autism in Thailand, Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok and Sindhorn Kempinski Hotel Bangkok joined hands to present BE Health, a corporate social responsibility initiative of Kempinski Hotels to develop and support the lives and health of the community through its Global campaign, Thinking Glocal While Acting Locally, with a donation of one million Thai baht net to the Autistic Thai Foundation to build a new Autism Learning centre at the Association of Parents of Persons with Autism (Thailand).
The Autistic Thai Foundation will use these funds to develop the Autism Learning Center programme to enhance the basic digital skills of children with special needs and their parents while improving physical abilities, brain function and basic social skills. The Autism Learning Centers will provide a learning base to develop hand dexterity with Autistic Application Series; virtual-world reality for basic skills through VR Glasses (Virtual Reality); step-by-step thought processes of digital art Coding courses; Canva computer programmes; English language curriculum skills from True Click Life; basic digital skills for parents; and more.
Both Kempinski hotels in Thailand have raised these funds by collecting One Euro Donation Per Night from in-house guests and organising various charity activities, including the BE Health Online Auction, which was held earlier in the year, to provide essential medical care, equipment and other support to children and adults with autism in Thailand.
Together with the Autistic Thai Foundation, Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok and Sindhorn Kempinski Hotel Bangkok are honoured to be part of this most meaningful programme to positively impact the lives of both children and adults in Thailand.
