Destination Wedding Planners Congress Sponsors a Teacher!

1 Comment

The 4th Annual Destination Wedding Planners (DWP) Congress, a “by-invitation-only” luxury event, is coming to Phuket from 2nd to 4th of May this year! Attending the Congress are A-list wedding planners, celebrity planners & royalty specialists, alongside some of the most exquisite creative partners from around the world.

Amid all this luxury, the Congress has chosen to add a charitable component this year and has graciously chosen Phuket Has Been Good To Us as their charity of choice.

DWP Congress is our newest major supporter and Sponsor of our Senior Teacher at Rachaprachanukroh 36 School, Jerlin Balais. This sponsorship covers a full year’s salary, visa and work permit fees which allow us to continue to benefit from Jerlin’s dedicated work. The sponsorship also provides each of Teacher Jerlin’s students with a practical and interactive English language education that goes beyond the classroom and supports their daily lives.

Teacher Jerlin is a Filipino national, and a graduate from the University of Santo Tomas with a degree in Bachelor of Secondary Education, majoring in School Guidance and Character Education. She started teaching in 2001 and has been teaching high school students in the Philippines and Thailand since then, and has also been involved in various non-governmental organisations. Jerlin identifies herself as both a teacher and human rights advocate and is very happy to be a part of PHBGTU and is grateful for the patronage demonstrated by DWP Congress.

Phuket Has Been Good To Us (PHBGTU) is a Thai registered children’s charity established after the 2004 Asian Tsunami destroyed all three schools we teach in. Our mission is to improve the economic opportunities and life chances of young people, by funding and implementing high quality, practical English language education in government schools in Phuket. Our goal is to help Thai youth become capable and confident English speakers so that they may secure well-paid employment. We teach English classes, for free, to over 1,200 Thai students aged 3 to 18 in three Government schools.
