First Aid Center, Baan Na School, Khao Yai, Nakorn Ratchsima Province, Thailand. The completion of a new First Aid Center at Baan Na Primary School, Khao Yai, Nakorn Ratchsima Province, sponsored by Boutique Corporation Public Company Limited.

The First Aid Center was completed in November 2009, with a budget of 1 million Thai Baht. The total area is 100 sq. m., including 4 individual patient beds, a private clinic room, and two toilets with showers for the patients.

Summary: Baan Na School is located in the famous tourist destination of Khao Yai in Nakorn Ratchsima Province, approximately a 2 hour drive from Bangkok. Baan Na School is one of the main primary schools in the province, with more than 500 primary school students from Grade 1-6. It also houses a nursery school within the same compound.

Boutique’s Managing Director Prab Thakral led the initiative to build the new First Aid Center for Baan Na School. The old center was in poor shape, unable to satisfactorily meet the basic medical care needs of the students. The construction of a new first aid center was critical for students, as most of them come from low-income families that rely on the school to provide medical support when required. Baan Na School’s new first aid center will provide basic medical care to nearby residents as well.

The First Aid Center was completed in memory of the Mr. Thakral’s grandfather, the late Ajit Singh Thakral, founder of Thakral Group of Companies in Thailand. His business legacy was continued later by his son Manmohan Thakral, currently a director and key adviser of Boutique Corporation Public Company Limited.

Aside from providing financial support for the project, Boutique took a hands-on approach in its construction. Mr. Thakral assigned Sathit Seupsuk and Thitiphong Yordshewon from Boutique's construction team to oversee the development of the First Aid Center. Boutique staff also bought new sports equipment for the children, and several of our suppliers chipped in with contributions that were integral to the completion of the center.

Boutique thanks everyone for their contributions, and thanks the Baan Na School for allowing us the opportunity to contribute. Mr. Thakral and Manmohan Thakral have pledged that Boutique will continue to engage in CSR projects in line with its CSR vision.
