BAMBI Charities Team Supports the Roy Rak Creative

For the first time in our charity activities, BAMBI is pleased to be supporting the Roy Rak Creative this year. Being run under the charity, Urban Neighbours of Hope Thailand, Roy Rak (which means ‘bead love’ in Thai) is a small group of women from the Klong Toei community who make and sell their original jewelry. The project provides workers the opportunity to be released from poverty and to live life to the fullest. The creative team receives fair wages, paid holiday, health insurance, a workspace, and the flexibility to fit working hours around childcare. They also have training for jewelry-making techniques and English language skills. 

Our ฿20,000 donation will be used for the supplies for their studio and workers.

All the jewelry is available for sale online.
