District 3330 (Thailand) will be using the US$39,500 district grant to fund a variety of local projects, including buying books, computers, and sports equipment for schools; providing clean water for students; and adding patient beds at a hospital.

One of the projects will create a computer room at a primary school in Samut Prakan Province, giving 755 students access to computers and the Internet. Eight Rotary clubs in the province; a club in District 3350 (Cambodia; Thailand), not in the pilot; and a club in Korea are cooperating on the $15,900 effort.
