Thai Princess’s project for improving children’s quality of life in Asia-Pacific

In Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn of Thailand’s capacity as UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador for the Empowerment of Minority Children through Education and through the Preservation of their Intangible Cultural Heritage, her own initiative the ‘Agriculture for School Lunch’ project has been expanded to Asia-Pacific countries, entitled “Improving the Quality of Life for Children and Youth”.

UNESCO has had the honour of cooperating closely with Her Royal Highness’ Office since 2006 in implementing the project in Cambodia, Lao PDR, and Viet Nam, with the strong support of the National Commissions for UNESCO and Ministries of Education. To date, the project operates in 21 schools in these three countries. Indonesia is a new member of this initiative.
