Good News
The Payap Life Long Learning Center is Open

LLL course presenters, special guests, and Payap faculty and staff gathered for the official opening of the Payap Life Long Learning Center on 27 September, 2022.  (See photos)

Our first class in the Center was held on 3 October as the water from the Ping River was threatening to flood much of Chiang Mai city.  We are grateful to all who have helped to make this Center a resource for the Chiang Mai community.

How You Can Help Now

We nearly reached our funding goal, but we are still  155,000 TB short of what we need to complete our financial obligation to the University for renovating and furnishing the building.  Some of the shortfall is due to the fact that when the renovation work was finished, we realized that we would have to install new floors and some draperies throughout the building in order to reduce the echo sound in each room.  We are now very happy that we did this because the sound is greatly improved.

There are some furnishings that we need but do not currently have the funds for.  These include:

Not purchased

  1. Mid-size refrigerator for pantry (6,000 TB)
  2. Water cooler/heater stand for pantry
  3. Flip charts with stands and pens (2)
  4. 18-inch fans (4) ( 1,200 per fan)
  5. Air Purifiers for 45-60 sq.meter. (5) (7,000 TB cost per purifier)
  6. Laptop computer (1)
  7. Printer with scan, print, copy, wi-fi features (1) (2,600 TB)
  8. Waste containers for recycling (3 number needed) (250 TB per one )
  9. Projection Screen with stand for PowerPoint and other media (1)
  10. Overhead Projector and sound system
  11. Hanging rods for the photo gallery

Already Installed

  1. Flooring (136,368 TB)
  2. Draperies (19,600TB)
  3. Outside floor and screens (21,300TB)

We would appreciate financial or in-kind donations for the above needs. During October, we will be announcing other ways that you can help LLL Payap.  We will be holding a meeting soon for persons who are interested in giving their time (when available) with tasks related to operating this Center year-round.  Please watch the Website and your Email for more news about this opportunity, and for all the classes we have coming up.  Thank You!
