    EDUCATION IS THE MAIN focus of Land and Houses Plc to provide growth opportunities for disadvantaged children.

    Suparat Veerakul, vice president for corporate communications, said yesterday that the company has launched a scholarship programme to support education for children of construction workers. The company also opens an outdoors school on its construction site to provide education for children who have to follow their family to work.

    The company's latest corporate social responsibility (CSR) project is Voice Book, which allows its customers to join in the reading of books aloud for blind children. This is also open to the public. Anyone interested in joining can click to www. lh.co.th/voicebook. This project runs until the end of next month.

    Most of L& H's CSR activities focus on education and children to help promote sustainable social development.

    The first targets for the scholarships are those related to its business such as construction workers, communities located near construction projects and its staff.

    The company also focuses on disadvantaged children such as those who are blind by providing educational opportunities that will help them take care of themselves in the long run.

    "We think the best way for CSR is not only to pay money but also to create sustainable employment for people who get our support so that they can stand on their own in the long term," she said.

    Land & Houses donates used calendars for the Foundation for the Blind in Thailand under the Royal Patronage of HM the Queen.

    Construction workers' children receive scholarship from L&H to help their family reduce their cost of living.
