The Changpuak Project I


The Changpuak Project is a project to support students and schools in Thailand. The idea is, that Europeans who intend to spend their retirement in Thailand, buy a house (or appartement). Until they retire, the house is rent out to other guests. With the Rental income (a small amount is saved for tax and repair), various school projects are supported. The project was initiated by อาจารย์ ช้างเผือก, with the help of น้องสาว วันทนา on december 5th, 2015.

The Changpuak Project, House No.: 1

The very first house, located near Hua Hin

✈ Beneficiary


The beneficiary of this very first children's day is the โรงเรียนบ้านหนองคอไก่ (จ.เพชรบุรี). This is a very poor school near the Royal Project Chang Hua Man. The money is used to equip the students with clothes and the school with tools/equipment like didactic toys. The lunch was sponsored by Mrs. Toy Suwimon.

The beneficiary of this year is the Ban Yan Sue Border Patrol Police School (โรงเรียนตำรวจตระเวนชายแดนบ้านย่านซื่อ), Kui Buri District, Prachuap Khiri Khan 77150. This is a very poor school between Khao Sam Roi Yot National Parc and the border of Myanmar. The money is used to equip the students with a new uniform and some didactic toys :-)
This year, no lunch was offered, as this Covid-19 thing dictated the schedule.

In the year 2023 the children's day was on january 12th. As ususal my team did a great job in preparing the new school uniforms for the pupils as well as the toys and other stuff like food. The school we considered this year was the โรงเรียน ตชด.ศรีสมวงศ์ near Chiang Rai. The food was donated by Chiang Mai Thai Shop, Zürich, Switzerland. Thank You !

In this year, we joined the efforts of the city Hua Hin. 27 bicycles have been bought and distributed by a lottery-like system to the children on january 13, 2567 (วันเด็กแห่งชาติ). The Changpuak-Team also provided some healthy snacks like waffles and ice-cream. And yes: 27 bikes because our father was born on december 5th in the year 1927 AD (Anno Domini, ค.ศ.) This is the year 2470 BE (Buddhist Era, ค.ศ.) - Some impressions ...

✈ Deduction

The income from the house is 144'000 Baht per year (2016) at 100% load. From that, 80% is used directly to support the school/students, 15% is used for tax/fees and 5% is used for repair/maintenace of the house. This figures may vary in the years to come. During the Covid-19 pandemy, rent was lowered to 132'000 Baht.

✈ Disclaimer

As me beeing an Ajarn, I believe that a prosperous future mayst be achieved by supporting students. The elefant logo was created by my late father, Mr. Albin Trisl, and the project changpuak logo was cretade by my sister, Mrs. Kitsanan Thongjaroen. ขอขอบพระคุณทุกท่าน.
