Baan Than Namchai Foundation plans
Following on from the registration of the Baan Than Namchai Foundation in May, planning is proceeding for the Baan Than Namchai orphanage to operate fully independently of the Duang Prateep Foundation from the start of 2012. Early in June Dr. Supphawut Manochantr left his work at the Duang Prateep Foundation headquarters in Bangkok to become manager at Baan Than Namchai.
Later in the month there was a meeting of trustees for the new foundation and a meeting with Mr. Peter Baines and Ms. Kay Spencer of Hands Across The Water (HATW) from Australia. A few days earlier a Duang Prateep Foundation trustees meeting took place in Bangkok to formally approve the separation of Baan Than Namchai from the DPF.
