Our History

In 2019 Pongpanott Deekong (Amp),

the founder was selected as one of the 15 leaders to participate in the Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative (YSEALI) in the Academic Fellowship program supported by the U.S. Bureau of Education and Cultural Affairs. There, he developed essential knowledge and skills to fulfil his dream to become a social entrepreneur with the help of experts and mentors at the University of Connecticut (UCONN). He received funding from the university  to pilot a project that tackles the issue of play in early childhood education.

Later, this project has become "Leeway".
