BEES currently needs funding for the following:

Elephants and Animals:


Option A: Sponsor the Elephant carer and owners: It is 15,000-18,000THB per month to sponsor an elephant carer (mahout) and provide an alternative income for the family that allow their elephants to rest and retire here. OR Sponsor an elephant permanently retired at BEES.

Option C: Donate a percentage towards the care of a specific elephant from 5,000THB per month

Option D: Donations of any amount – once off or monthly for 1 year or more.

Funding for our resident elephants and other animals is very much needed. We need funds to keep the animals healthy and well fed. Your support in this area will go towards the upkeep of the elephants and other animals at the sanctuary. We currently also feed and house 4 tortoises, 7 dogs and 5 cats.

500 Thai baht can supply the elephants with  bananas for one whole week.  1000 baht supplies two elephants food such as watermelon, pumpkin or corn,  for one week. 900 baht buys a bag of dog food and 700baht buys a bag of cat food.

Education of Children and Locals:

Education is the key for creating a better tomorrow for the local children. At BEES provides an English learning program. We have also partnered up with the the local government education office to help develop children’s English in local schools. Aside from the English program we also run small children’s projects to raise awareness about animal welfare, conservation and the environment. We have both clean up days and tree planting days in the rainy season. In the rainy season of 2011 the kids planted an amazing 303 trees in one single day.

If you wish to donate in this area 1000 baht would supply trees for planting, bags for cleanup days or materials for the children’s English learning program e.g. pens, pencils, work books, coloring in pencils, rubbers and ink to print fun and education worksheets.

BEES aims for the local community to benefit from our project. We want to bring the community together. Our first major project will be to build a temple in Mae Tan village as many locals cannot travel to the temple in the next village. Buddhism is an integral way of life here and at BEES we would like to show our support  by building this temple to help the old and disabled who who simply want to pay their respects to Buddha. We estimate a village temple and ceremonial Buddha images to cost around about 150,000 baht+. Your donation towards this would be appreciated by so many.

Our next project could be buying supplies of soymilk for the old, malnourished elders that live in the village and can’t afford soymilk. Soymilk is the most favored drink for Thais over the age of 60yrs. It is highly nutritional and the elders spend a lot of their time looking after grandchildren, making clothes or items for selling.
