SilkAir partners with Child’s Dream Foundation to build a future for children in the sub-Mekong Region.
From January 2015, SilkAir, the regional wing of Singapore Airlines, is adopting Child’s Dream Foundation.
The charitable, not-for-profit organization is based in Chiang Mai, Thailand, and is dedicated to empowering marginalised children and youth in the Mekong Sub-Region, including Myanmar, Laos, Thailand and Cambodia.
Focusing on improving the educational and health situation for children and youth, Child’s Dream Foundation is committed to identifying the most needy beneficiaries and implementing projects that serve their needs in the most efficient and effective way.
SilkAir’s Chief Executive, Leslie Thng, and Co-Founder of Child’s Dream Foundation, Marc Jenni, officially sealed the three-year collaboration through a Memorandum of Understanding at a signing ceremony held today at Child’s Dream headquarters in Chiang Mai.
Thng said that SilkAir recognised the importance of a robust education and health programme and thus, besides supporting them through providing tickets and cargo, the company also hoped to spread awareness and inspire more people to support the work of Child’s Dream and to be the catalyst of change that these communities needed.
