Panyaden Giving Week: Year 7 visits Agape Home Chiang Mai

Panyaden Giving Week 2017

Year 7 Visit to Agape Home

We have been blessed with many donations during our flood appeal efforts, now it’s time to give back to the community. As part of our Giving Week, Year 7 (Y7) students brought books to donate to Nikki’s Place Agape Home and to read to the children. The orphanage provides a home for children livning with AIDS/HIV in Chiang Mai. The following is a lovely note from the orphanage. Thank you, our students had a wonderful time too!

“On behalf of Agape Home, I would like to thank you for your visit to our Home yesterday. The kindergarten children enjoyed the stories and loved interacting with your students. The books you have given us are both beautiful and very useful…Your students were delightful, capable and friendly.” – Dianne Wilson, International Volunteer Coordinator.
