The Royal Thai Embassies and Consulates abroad played an essential role in providing support during the Young Ambassadors of Virtue’s visits under the “Broadening the Young Ambassadors of Virtue’s Perspectives” Project. They helped facilitate the organization of trips by giving programme advice, selecting appropriate local schools, giving a warm welcome to the delegations, and making sure that the visits went smoothly. With the assistance of the Royal Thai Embassies and Consulates, the delegations had the opportunity to pay courtesy calls on the Ambassadors, the Consul-Generals, and local high-ranking officials in those countries. The visits also allowed the Young Ambassadors to learn about the responsibilities and work of staff and officers at the Royal Thai Embassies and Consulates. Many were even inspired to become future diplomats.
Foreign diplomatic missions in Thailand have been important contributors to knowledge-sharing on foreign countries for the Foundation’s network of schools through student exchange programmes which helped to foster friendships among them. Scholarships granted by foreign Embassies to exemplary students in the network schools provided encouragement for the recipients to remain determined to study hard and to become good citizens in the future.
