Bangkok--16 Oct--SET

The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) honors and encourages philanthropic actions of individuals and organizations through its annual "Social Recognition Project" covering seven areas. This year's award from the Vimuttayalaya Foundation for social development, sponsored by SET, has just been granted to Pootalaewishshalai School for its role model in managing the new and unique practical education following His Majesty the King’s initiatives of the sufficiency economy philosophy.

This award is one of the awards in seven areas, selected by seven organizations, recognizing the outstanding individuals, and is one of SET's key corporate social responsibility projects. This project identifies, honors and motivates the social leaders who are dedicated to benefit the society and encouraging others to follow their footsteps.SET Chairman Sathit Limpongpan said that SET granted THB 2 million to support the Vimuttayalaya Foundation to support its main missions of community creativity and Buddhism knowledge development, enabling community to apply Buddhist principles in their everyday life in a magnitude of benefits to the society. The Foundation then awards part of the fund to Pootalaewishshalai School (Mab Euang’s Agri-Nature Learning Center) in Chonburi province. The school is a role model in managing education based on H.M. King Bhumibol‘s sufficiency economy philosophy by focusing on earning a living enough to be self- dependent first, then providing assistance in groups up to community level, ultimately creating values to the society. Phramaha Vudhijaya Vajiramedhi, chairman of the Vimuttayalaya Foundation, said that we appreciated the remarkable profile and dedication of the Pootalaewishshalai School and its founder Wiwat Salyakamthorn who was strongly committed to operating this valuable learning center according to H.M. King’s philosophy and expanded its practice to Thai villagers and farmers nationwide, including international communities. The committee therefore agreed to grant the award to the school for its contribution as a firm foundation for sustainability through social development for our beloved country. The other award recipients screened and selected by the other four organizations will be announced soon. These four organizations are the Duang Prateep Foundation, the Population and Community Development Association, the Professor Sangvian Indaravijaya Foundation, and the Thai Library Association. SET has recently granted two awards, which are the award for the Football History Association granted to Niwat Sriswat for his 15 years of outstanding work in coaching community youth football and Nimae Nidehah for his football coaching in Pattani for two decades, while the one for the Sugree Charoensook award was granted to Thanis Sriklindee for his musical talent in initiating Thai folk flute’s incredible techniques and varieties to preserve Thai cultural heritage.
