| Bangkok, Thailand The first full, not-for-profit IB World School in Thailand

Our mission is to keep the NIST cats happy, healthy and safe through a trap neuter and release program on campus and educate the community about stray cat issues

Our Profile

We are a group of kids from NIST. Our group contains kids from year 6, 7 and 8. NIST has a lot of stray cats at the back of the school. We want to keep them at our school and keep them healthy so that both other kids and the cats don’t get hurt. We use cat friendly traps to catch them and then bring them to the veterinarian to get them spayed and neutered.

Which UN Sustainable Development Goals Do We Support?

To provide a clear context for the aims of service groups at NIST, we align our projects to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). “The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. The SDGs work in the spirit of partnership and pragmatism to make the right choices now to improve life, in a sustainable way, for future generations.” This NIST group supports the following goals:

Goal 15 aims to conserve and restore the use of terrestrial ecosystems such as forests, wetlands, drylands and mountains by 2020. Promoting the sustainable management of forests and halting deforestations is also vital to mitigating the impact of climate change. Urgent action must be taken to reduce the loss of natural habitats and biodiversity which are part of our common heritage.
