Community and Environmental Initiatives
The Sarojin recognises the responsibility it has as a corporate citizen and is dedicated to supporting the local community and the environment.
Supporting Children with disabilities
Thank you for the amazing support by everyone involved in the Marathon Fundraiser, held in December 2012, to support the children at the Camillian Social Centre, Takuapa, www.camilliantakuapa.org.
It was a great success and a fantastic THB 96,948.51 (approx. USD 3,200) was raised. As well, it brought about much awareness for the centre and Down’s Syndrome.
Your extremely generous support, that is so greatly appreciated by the local families, helps to support and provide day care for Downs Syndrome and disabled children.
Thank you very much.
The Sarojin Khao Lak Community Fund
The Sarojin Khao Lak Community Fund was established prior to the opening of the resort and as a first response to the 26 December 2004 Tsunami.
As Executive Director, Andrew Kemp explains: "To date, in combination with our international contacts and partners we have been able to support a significant number of projects in Khao Lak, wider Phang Nga Province, Thailand and emergency relief in Myanmar (Burma) for cyclone Nargis in May 2008."
To date The Sarojin Khao Lak Community Fund has contributed to a number of projects, including: medical provision for prosthetic limbs; child care and orphanage support; school classroom buildings and equipment; road building and street lighting; animal welfare and supporting a full time veterinary surgeon; landscape replanting and regeneration; and boat yard and longtail boat building, restoring the local fishing fleet.
100% of The Sarojin Khao Lak Community Fund is distributed to community projects in Khao Lak, Phang Nga Province and recently Myanmar (Burma).
74 Children Dressed to Impress, June 2011
The Sarojin Khao Lak Community Fund presented each of the 74 children of Baan Tharn Nam Chai Orphange with a new school uniform. The presentation day was hosted by The Sarojin staff at the orphange and consisted of games and prizes, lunch, dancing and an immense amount of laughter and fun. Our greatest thanks to those who donated to the fund to make this happen.
A Tri For The Community, November 2010
Owner of The Sarojin, Kate Kemp, took part in and completed her first ever triathlon in Phuket on Sunday, 28 November 2010. Greater than the Olympic distance, the course comprised a 1.8km swim, 55km bike and 12km run. Kate completed the course in a very credible 3 hours and 52 minutes and finished 298th out of 625 starters. Thank you to everyone who gave donations and sponsored Kate – we raised total of USD 855 for charity.
A Walk For The Community, June 2008
Ninety-four staff and families of The Sarojin participated in a 5km fund raiser walk on 15 June 2008. Thank you to everyone who gave donations – we raised an amazing USD 9,000!
The Fund is administered by The Board of Directors of The Sarojin, senior Sarojin staff as well as local community leaders and the bank.
