Minor International presents:
The Coffee Club's Teacher Bean Sprouts Project
The Coffee Club's Teacher Bean Sprouts Project is an ongoing effort to continuously promote educational development at Wat Sao Thong Kao School in a more sustainable way by generating income from growing in-school bean sprouts, in partnership with Minor’s nearby supplier, and supplying them to make ‘Pad Thai’ (stir fired rice noodle), and serve customers at The Coffee Club restaurants. The school's income is used for funding the salary of an English-speaking teacher, who is a critical factor to stimulate and increase students’ English skills. As a result, the average school’s O-Net English score has increased from 73.33% in 2017 to 78.75% in 2018 and Pad Thai sales at The Coffee Club stores have increased by 31% from 2017.
