The Bank initiated the project for donating school buildings to rural areas in 1975, and has since donated school buildings to 29 schools in 28 provinces across Thailand. The Bank continues to maintain these school buildings so that they remain in good shape and conducive to the learning of young people. The project reflects the Bank’s determination to support education, which is a vital element for the country’s development.
