Stories, rants & conversations on life in Asia’s craziest city.

Community, Philanthropy, and Condoms with Mechai Viravaidya – Part Two [Season 3, Episode 37]

In Thailand, there are plenty of household names, but not many of them bring a smile and a twinkle to the eye the way that “Mechai” does. If you’re unfamiliar with Mechai Varivaidya, you’re missing out. Known as Mr. Condom, Mechai’s career began in the 1970s when he became famous for traveling around the country giving out condoms - a truly unconventional (even controversial) thing to do at the time. In part two of our interview with Khun Mechai - delightfully feisty and sharp as a tack - he chats about the success of his family planning and AIDS prevention measures, his innovative education system known as the ‘Bamboo School’ initiative, and educates the guys over a handful of haggis potato chips.
