    The Beaumont Partnership Foundation

    The Beaumont Ruam Pattana School in Chaiyaphum was conceived as a means of re-dressing some of the inequalities in educational opportunities between Bangkok and the rest of Thailand. The Beaumont Partnership has been in business here for over the 23 years. Over that period of time the continuing drift of young people from rural areas to urban centres has remained clearly apparent. Typically the reason for this drift is the search for an improved standard of living for themselves and their families.

    A recognition that the opportunity to improve standards of living is largely driven by access to education is what drove The Beaumont Partnership to establish the TBP Foundation with a focus on establishing a school in Chaiyaphum province. In some way this is intended as a means of contributing back to the community that has supported the company over many years. With the assistance of its extended network of fellow consultants, building suppliers, developers and generous individuals, the initial phase of the school is now open.  The school opened with 128 students from kindergarten one through to grade two.  The school will be progressively built out as the children grow through the school.

    Continuing economic sustainability is one of the fundamental principles embraced by the school’s board. On that basis the intention is that income derived from a construction industry focussed business park, a hospitality college and an organic farm, situated on land close to the school, will eventually provide for the ongoing financial needs of the school. It is anticipated that the establishment of this support base will take between five to six years, and in the interim financial support is sought from the broader community.

    HIFU - New Treatment for Prostate Cancer

    Prostate cancer gives no warning signs before becoming aggressive. Screening should start at the age of 50 for all men and 40 for men with higher risks. Current standard treatments like surgery or radiotherapy are effective but there is a high chance that it comes accompanied with side effects. Now, there is a robotic assisted High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU), a viable alternative for the treatment of prostate cancer without surgery. It’s extremely precise and harmless to adjacent tissues. There is minimal incontinence and impotence, no radioactive and takes only 1-3 days to recover. HIFU is now available at Samitivej Sukhumvit Hospital.
