Mechai Viravaidya
Mechai Viravaidya founded the Population and Community Development Association (PDA) in 1974 to address the unsustainable population growth in Thailand. A variety of innovative methods were applied to make contraceptives available throughout rural Thailand, which resulted in a more sustainable annual population growth rate. Similar approaches were also used to initiate a major prevention program when HIV/AIDS first appeared in Thailand.

Mechai has also aggressively approached the problem of rural poverty by empowering the poor to build sustainable entrepreneurial capacity, community, empowerment, income-generating activities and environmental protection. In 2008, he established the Mechai Bamboo School in Buriram province, to re-engineer rural education and to enable the school to be a life-long learning center. Today, with the help of the private sector, over one hundred small rural schools have begun to adopt this concept and have begun to take on a greater role in their surrounding communities. 

KIS International School
KIS’s vision is Inspiring Individuals!

As a mid-sized school with around 700 students from 55 different countries, the welcoming atmosphere at KIS is one of the school’s great strengths. KIS’s smaller size ensures individual attention for each student and a positive attitude to learning.

Offering the International Baccalaureate for all age groups, the curriculum is well-balanced and academic results are strong, with consistent high IB Diploma pass rates and high average scores. These have paved the way for KIS graduates to enter top universities around the world.

The green, spacious campus with excellent facilities is situated near the city center.

Visit KIS and experience our blend of Knowledge, Inspiration and Spirit first hand.
