As part of our Corporate Social Responsibilities program, Fah Mai Holdings Inc. has set up the Hope Fund, taken from the Thai words Satta (Believing) and Mai (New) and roughly translated to mean New Hope.
All our staff members are required to participate in giving their time to our CSR program through what we call Direct Action, and with the financial support from the Hope Fund, this allows us to contribute much more to the local community.
We understand that everyone’s needs are different and there is not a one solution fix that can help everyone. We do not limit ourselves to a defined type of help, i.e. giving food, teaching, building, etc. We want to provide the most useful help we can with the funding and time we have, so we are going out there and doing the best we can for those we can help in a multitude of ways.
We have opened the Hope Fund to the public, inviting them to apply or to nominate an individual or a cause that they think would benefit from our assistance.
If you would like to apply or to nominate a person or cause then please follow the link below and complete the application form.
At present, FMH spends its time at the Mercy Centre (Klongtoey, Bangkok) mentoring children Monday-Friday, giving help with homework, teaching values and providing support to children that need it along with the odd fun day out.
Mercy Centre is a shelter for street kids, five orphanages, a hospice, a home for mothers and children with HIV/AIDS, a 400-pupil kindergarten, a community meeting place, and a serene haven in the slums with small gardens and playgrounds. Originally built on a former Buddhist Temple site on port authority property, Mercy Centre has stood in some shape or form for nearly 40 years. In 2000, it was rebuilt through a generous gift to accommodate our expanding services to orphans, street children, and children with HIV/AIDS.

After The Wave is a Thailand based non-profit foundation established by students, teachers and associates of the International School Bangkok after the 2004 tsunami. Originally setup to help with the immediate aftermath of the tsunami, After The Wave began at the R-35 school, located in the village of Bang Sak, in the province of Phang Na, about 100 km north of Phuket. The school was devastated by the wave. The buildings were destroyed, a number of children and parents died, and many more were left homeless.
ATW has since evolved to offer help to children and their families with the basic needs and expenses of education. Recent projects have helped students at the Mogen Community School at Koh Surin Island, as well as scholarship support for students relocating due to violence or instability.
Fah Mai Holdings Inc. Hope Fund has recently reached out to After The Wave Foundation and in support of the very important work they have been doing has pledged a monthly donation to their foundation and a commitment to help support some of their students with their study needs.
