The Beaumont Partnership Foundation
The Beaumont Ruam Pattana School in Chaiyaphum was established to address the inequalities in educational opportunities between Bangkok and the rest of Thailand. It was founded by The Beaumont Partnership, an internationally recognised design company that has operated in Thailand for over 23 years, on the notion that education is the basis of improving standards of living in rural areas.
With the assistance of its extended network of fellow consultants, building suppliers, developers and generous individuals, the school opened with 128 students from kindergarten one through to grade two. The school will continue to expand as the children grow through the grades.
Economic sustainability is one of the fundamental principles that drives the school. Income from a construction industry, hospitality college and an organic farm – which are all situated close to the school – will eventually provide the financial resources to keep the school going. It is estimated that it will take between five to six years for this sustainability to realise. Until then, financial support will be sought from the broader community.
