Philanthropy has always been a big part of Chatri's life and is something close to his heart. When Chatri was 13 years old, his mother forced him to work on weekends as a volunteer in Klong Toey Slum, one of Bangkok's most impoverished slums with a population of 100,000 people. He hates to admit it, but he was initially reluctant to do it and he even tried his best to get out of it. In the end though, it changed Chatri's entire perspective on life. Apart from his own personal experience surviving in poverty many years later, it is one of the reasons why Chatri is a big believer in volunteer work and charity, and why his companies are so active with helping children who are impoverished, disadvantaged, underprivileged, and/or unfortunate. Today, he personally donates a meaningful amount of his time, money, and resources on a regular basis to organizations such as Boys Town Home, Children's Cancer Foundation, Singapore Children's Society, Project Sunshine, MINDS, and other charities.
