Born and raised in America, dashing doctor Sakson “Saks” Rouypirom relocated to Thailand four years ago with a Medical degree focusing on psychology from New York University in tow and a heart full of eagerness to make this world a better, healthier place. Noticing a need for better healthcare among the underprivileged in Thailand, Sakson founded SATI Foundation – a non-profit organization that focuses on providing better access to healthcare and education for needy children in Thailand and beyond. “Sati” is a Pali word that means mindfulness, symbolic of his organization’s emphasis on charity work based on mindfulness of those who are less fortunate, – a much- needed wake-up call amid misdirected acts of charity in our society today. Thanks to his medical background, one of SATI’s first projects was the Scholarship Program, which focuses on students with an interest in the medical field, as well as the Mobile Medicine Initiative, which gives access to preventive-level medical services to underserved people far and wide. Sakson also makes philanthropy more accessible for urban people by collaborating with wide-reaching partners such as The Lab, Spicy Disc, GoodfortheGood, Broccoli Revolution, and, this we’re proud to say, 2Magazine, with the FACES/NOW art therapy project and exhibition. He redefines the charity landscape in Thailand, making social contribution more relevant than ever before.
