All the Thais
have been well aware of and have fully realized that His Majesty the King
is the center of love and loyalty of the people from all walks of life.
Through the years, His Majesty has devoted His strength, wisdom, time and
financial support, as well as worked and taken part in activities for the
development of the country and assistance to the deprived. However, the
implementation of development projects, at times, faces some restrictions
such as budget constraints, procedural problems etc., which therefore desenabled
them to consistently serve the needs of the people according to the urgency
His Majesty the King, therefore, initiated the establishment of the
Chaipattana Foundation, aiming to help His people through development activities
in various forms were help can also be given in other ways that truly benefit
the people and that are not affected by time constraint.
The Chaipattana Foundation was officially registered as a juristic entity
at the Ministry of Interior under the registration number 3975 on June
14, 1988 and the registration was made public in the Royal Gazette, no.
105, section 109 on July 12, 1988.
of the Chaipattana Foundation are as follows
To support the implementation
of Royally-initiated and other development projects.
To promote the development
of social and economic welfare activities to improve the quality of life
of the people and to enable them to become self-reliant.
To carry out
plans or projects that are beneficial to the people and the country as
To co-operate with
the government sector and other charity organizations for public benefit
or to take action that reinforce support of public welfare.
To carry out activities
without political involvement.
Chaipattana Foundation focuses on development activities that are not repetitions
of government projects; it tries to promote and co-ordinate the implementation
of various projects for effectiveness, promptness and relevance. Particular
attention is given to governmental projects that are restricted by rules
and regulations, which cause a delay in the immediate implementation of
project activities. An example can be seen of the case of the Chaipattana
Foundation assistance to relocate households and villagers from a particular
area in order to be able to launch an urgent project. The Foundation assists
in allocating resources for the resettlement programme to provide the neccessary
means for the community to be capable of earning their livelihood as well
as conducting training for occupational development. Another aspect of
establishing resettlement is to integrate development programmes to increase
income and the standard of living of the people by promoting the community's
awareness of the value of protecting forest and by encouraging the people
to participate in reforestation activities.
The above examples can be regarded as
advancement in the country's development methods, having the Chaipattana
Foundation acting as a juristic entity, to co-ordinate and support all
the development projects of the government to make them work harmoniously,
and to enable those with particular problems can continue operating for
the greatest benefit of the people and the country.
