On November 10, 2012, 61 members of the “To BE Number 1” club of FETL’s Prachinburi Factory visited Wat Krongyang Elementary School in Saraburi Province. The school, which has 23 students, was established in 1935. Although the old building needed to be repaired, including the repainting of the classrooms, it was left unrepaired because the school did not have enough funds. Hearing this, members of FETI voluntarily visited the school on a holiday to repair the building, including repainting the classrooms. Looking at the repaired building, teachers and children of the school said with delight, “It’s like a new school!”
