Now in its 11th consecutive year, PANDORA’s ‘My School Project’ is one of the longest running charity initiatives for the company. The initiative gives PANDORA employees in Thailand the chance to help the school they once attended.
In some areas of Thailand, especially rural areas, school buildings can still be run-down and filled with old equipment, which may lower the quality of education. PANDORA’s ‘My School Project’ gives its employees in Thailand a chance to give back to their local communities.
Each year, PANDORA’s employees in Thailand can nominate the school that they once attended for the project. Once a school has been chosen, the project of both renovating and building facilities begins with the materials paid for by PANDORA.

By asking employees to “show me” the way they complete certain tasks, we can see where our procedures, and sometimes our equipment, need to be adjusted to make our facilities safer.
