Recreational Bangkok Biking and CSR
CSR stands for Corporate Social Responsibility. Although the wise still didn't agree whether a company should practice CSR or not, for us it's a given fact that every person or company has responsibilities towards staff, community, environment and the world. NOT only to take, but try to preserve and to give something back to community and environment.
Recreational Bangkok Biking has adopted the LTR philosophy. LTR stands for Love, Trust and Respect. 3 simple elements placed in a triangle, that pictures the relation you have with your partner, staff, community etc, etc,. If you would like to learn more about LTR please visit www.lovetrustrespect.com.
We believe that every person should try to give something back to the community was actually founded together with the founding of RBB. While cycling through slum areas of Bangkok, to see how life is passing by for an estimated 1,5 million of "Bangkok residents", the kindness of these people, the warm welcome they give us every day. If you have a chance to see this yourself, you immediately would agree with "how can I help to make this place a bit better". A question we, Westerners, often forget because of the busy lives we have.
RBB wanted to help and in 2005 we made our choice/mission, the Yennagart kindergarten.
The Yennagart kindergarten is located in a slum area in Yannawa, one of Bangkok's districts. With our Colors of Bangkok cycling groups we pass this school and when not closed we stop to say hello to the 120 children in this school. Kindergarten schools are not mandatory in Thailand. Many kindergartens in Bangkok are private and way out of reach for slum-residents. Education is the base for every child/person to grow into a better life. The earlier children get education, the better the chances the children can pick up what they have been taught, and simply increases a successful study.
HDF (Human Development Foundation) operates 30 kindergartens in slum areas of Bangkok and the Yennagart school is one of them. Recreational Bangkok Biking Ltd is proud of its achievements towards HDF/Yennagart school. For a company as small as RBB, its achievements are huge and an example for companies considering helping the community. Read below all the projects accomplished.
