Phai Luak School
Krasang - Buriram
Phai Luak is a small school not far from Krasang. It
accommodates 50 children plus the headmistress and
her very capable all female staff. The school is very
clean and tidy but it’s water system was falling apart.
The old rainwater storage tanks all leaked and water
was being stored in the small pots above.
RCES under the guidance of our Rotary Member,
Nittaya Rottmann and her husband Peter, arranged for
the demolish ion and removal of the old tanks and the
installation of a new one.
RCES will also be providing the school with 5 gravity
drip filters to provide them with clean drinking water.
RCES will be providing the families of these children
with gravity drip filters to make sure they continue to
drink clean water.
