Rajaprajanugroh Foundation joins forces with PWA to launch the first “Waterworks Volunteer for the Public” campaign
Rajaprajanugroh Foundation under Royal Patronage, in collaboration with Provincial Waterworks Authority (PWA), hosted the signing ceremony of “Waterworks Volunteer for the Public Year 1” memorandum of understanding (MoU) to create awareness among youths of the value of water resources.
As part of the programme, “Young Heroes…Volunteering for Water Conservation” network was established to preserve the quality of water resources, monitor the water quality, and investigate leaks in the community and report them to PWA. The aim of the youth network is to preserve national water resources for the benefit of all.
Privy Councillor Admiral Pongthep Nuthep, Executive Chairman of the Rajaprajanugroh Foundation, stated: “The foundation was established according to His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej The Great’s mercy, following the devastation caused by the massive storm crisis at Laem Talumphuk, Nakhon Si Thammarat in 1962. The foundation’s mission is to grant assistance for natural disaster victims and provide educational support for 58 Rajaprajanugroh Schools and eight other schools supported by Rajaprajanugroh Foundation. The first Volunteers on Water for People Project marks the beginning of building networks to preserve water and implant awareness among children and youths so they realise the value of water and help preserve resources sustainably.”
Mr. Kritsada Sunkhamani, PWA Deputy Governor (Technical Affairs) and Acting Governor said: “PWA is responsible for launching the ‘Waterworks Volunteer for the Public Year 1’ programme for 66 schools managed by Rajaprajanugroh Foundation. The campaign includes hosting public relations events to pass on knowledge and understanding of economical water consumption, raise awareness of water leakages, monitor the water quality and perform basic household water pipe maintenances. The programme also aims to expand the volunteer network to help investigate water resources and leakage incidents in the communities, so as to reduce depletion of water resources.”
