Languages and computer course
From 2004 to 2011, Our main activities are teaching English,Thai and computer internet to migrant workers who had lack educational opportunity in the past. There are around 30 language students and 7 computer students come to take study every year. After graduating from our course, the academic year celebration are taken place and we offer educational certificate to graduated students. finally, we find better jobs for some of them and another are sent to any institute for further study since Thai government now introduces education for all and the others are working as staffs in our office. And then, another 37 new students are accepted to enroll for upcoming academic year. We accept only 30 students per term to take study since our centre can hold maximum just 37 people. So, accepting amount of students is limitation.
