Laguna Phuket is creating a Mobile Learning Centre that will travel from school to school. Linking teachers with remote schools to deliver books and lessons to otherwise disadvantaged children.
The Mobile Learning Centre will cost approximately THB 2.5 Million to set up and the running costs will then be supported by Laguna.
Laguna uses our popular sporting events, namely the Laguna Phuket International Marathon, Laguna Phuket Triathlon, and Ironman 70.3 Laguna Phuket, as a platform to help raise money to impact thousands of kids' futures in Phuket and Phang Nga provinces. We strive to create a valuable, worthy and altruistic purpose to participating in these events that compliments the personal goals of the event participants..
