This summer, ZOE Thailand was presented an award by Thailand's Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha for being an Outstanding Organization in the Prevention and Combating of Human Trafficking.
When we found out that we would be having the momentous opportunity to receive an award directly from the Prime Minister, we thought "what could we give him to show our gratitude?"
Something handmade, something crafted with care and attention to detail with a personalized touch...
Over the years, many students have received instruction in the basics of woodworking and out of that group some have shown innate inclination and rare talent. In particular, one boy heard about this opportunity to build something for the Prime Minister and enthusiastically volunteered. After two evenings of crafting, experimenting, and perfecting, he assembled a beautiful piece of art that we could proudly hand to the man who leads this country.
We are so very proud of this young man who used his talent and skills to create this special gift.
