On December 22, 2018, Christmas arrived early for the Intanon Wittaya School in Chiang Mai, when top executives from leading Thailand property development company Boutique Corporation PCL presented ten desktop computers to the school.
Inthanon Wittaya School is located in Amphur Mae Chaem, 111.2 kilometres from Chiang Mai, with 192 kindergarten and primary school students. The school offers a computer class but had only 11 computers available in the classroom before the donation. Some of the students plan to participate in a computer competition, for which they had an inadequate number of computers with which to practice and prepare. Hearing of this need, Boutique Corporation PCL chose Inthanon Wittaya School for its 2018 corporate social responsibility.
Chatchawan Wisetkhoon, the director of Intanon Wittaya School, said, “We thank Boutique Corporation Public Company Limited for donating these computers. Inthanon Wittaya School is very grateful. Through teaching and learning activities, our school will use the computers for the maximum benefit of our students.”
The presentation was made by Prabsharan Thakral, President and Group CEO; Ekanut Ungphakorn, Chief Operating Officer; Nattaya Huatsoontorn, Chief Financial Controller; and Pornpimol Chaichanakajorn, Senior Vice President – HR Business Partner.
President and Group CEO Prabsharan Thakral commented, “Boutique Corporation PCL appreciates this opportunity to support Thailand students. It is essential for them to develop computer skills in preparation for almost any future profession. We’re pleased we can help further their education during this holiday season.”
This is the first donation Boutique Corporation PCL has made to Inthanon Wittaya School. Last year, Boutique Corporation PCL made donations to causes including “To Be Number One Under Princess Ubolratana”; the Charity Shield Golf Cup, arranged by the Fund for Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities; The Department of the Interior of Krathu District, Phuket Province, to plant marigold flowers for the Royal Ceremony; and the Bowling Charity by CRMC Royal Thai Air Force Alumni.
