LUSH – generating organic food and income
This successful project nowadays not only provides a sustainable and healthy supply of vegetarian food to the children and the school’s employees, but it also gives the organisation a regular source of income, as significant amounts of surpluses are sold on the local markets.
The Yaowawit School and Resort welcomes visitors, volunteers, and donations. You can join Yaowawit on Facebook at: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Yaowawit-School-Kapong/180194605329269?ref=ts
LUSH – filming the Yaowawit School
A total of 314,000 THB were donated to construct a greenhouse for growing organic vegetables, to build a 10 stations learning centre to teach children sustainable farming skills and provide the school with sustainable income. In July 2012, LUSH went for a week to visit the projects and to shoot a series of short films. The films, shot by filmmaker Stijn Dessel, are to be donated to the school and used to promote its cause and raise more funds in the future.

LUSH – Art with the Camillian kids
A small group came together to visit the Camillian Home and celebrate World Habitat Day.
