Former EIS Principal for Student Administration
Ekamai International School (EIS), together with Ramkhamhaeng Advent International School
(RAIS), sponsored 2,000 T-shirts and mosquito nets respectively to the students of Vangvieng
Ethnic School and the church members of the Seventh-day Adventist church of Lao People’s
Democratic Republic. The Thai-Lao Joint Project project was organized by Achan Rungsit
Satayavaksakool, the retired pastor and former president of Thailand Adventist Mission. It is
under the Seventh-day Adventist church of Thailand. The goal of the project is to help the needs
of the ethnic groups and support the work of God in this part of the world.
There are altogether 13 ethnic schools in Laos. The students of the schools are from ethnic tribes,
and the schools are boarding schools. EIS and RAIS have been consistently helping several
different ethnic schools for several years before the pandemic. This was the first project after the
Khun Chayaporn Wittayapiban, EIS Treasurer; Khun Poramit, Srikkureja, RAIS Assistant
Chairman; Rungsit Satsuayavaksakool, Project Organizer; Pastor Keophetsamon Somphou, SDA
Mission President of Lao People’s Democratic Republic; and the team visited the Vangvieng
Ethnic School and distributed the shirts to the teacher representatives and district educational
officers of Vangvieng Ethnic School on April 1, 2023.
The donated items were then given to the students. It was a joy to share what we have with
people in need. Appreciation goes to the Administrators of EIS and RAIS for their financial
support. God will continue to bless EIS and RAIS for their continued support to help the needy
in the community.
