In the morning, as part of the celebrations for this special day, people gave alms to the monks to commemorate the day and wish longevity to the princess. Thais also visited public places and temples to show their loyalty to the royal family, reflecting the deep sense of national unity and pride that is so important to the people of Thailand.
Princess Sirindhorn’s dedication to Thailand and its people is exemplary. After completing her doctoral studies in Development Education, Princess Sirindhorn believes in using education as a means for community and social development, which has led her to work in community development activities. Her experience in fields such as health and hygiene, education, water resources development, agriculture and cottage industries has led her to develop a special interest in agricultural extension to improve the nutritional conditions of school children, support for education from pre-school to tertiary level and mother and child care. She has also focused on helping the handicapped, especially in the use of information technology to develop independent living and learning skills.
