Education Development

ThaiBev believes that the development of knowledge and the enhancement of human resources play a critical role in advancing sustainable development and improving quality of life.

Over the past years, ThaiBev has supported education for children and youth through many types of projects, such as scholarships, promotion of knowledge and business skill.

ThaiBev hopes that everyone will be able to develop oneself and contribute to improving society and the country. Furthermore, ThaiBev continues to provide scholarships to employees and their children in order to reinforce their capabilities and to promote employee welfare.
Scholarship Fund for Children of Employees
Because children mean everything to parents, ThaiBev is committed to helping them as part of employee welfare. The company considers it very important to provide educational support through scholarship funds from primary education through university levels for employees’ children who have strong academic performance, in order to help the parents with their children’s educational costs. The employees who are eligible must work at the operation level and have good or excellent working performance, while their children must have good behavioral and academic records.

In addition, ThaiBev’s “White Elephant Scholarship” is awarded to employees’ children who have outstanding academic records at university level. Over the past 10 years (from 2010 to 2019), ThaiBev awarded more than 10,300 scholarships worth over 64 million baht. In 2019, employees’ children received 1,112 scholarships worth 6,891,000 baht.

In addition to awarding scholarships, ThaiBev also considers accepting employees’ children to join its workforce. Currently, there are 40 employees that previously received scholarships from ThaiBev and are now working with the company. This includes 10 employees working in Route-to-Market group, 12 employees in the Spirit group, three employees in the Beer group, two employees in the finance and accounting group, 11 employees in the supply chain management, one employee in the internal audit office and one employee in an affiliated company.

“I am so glad that I had a chance to receive scholarships and join ThaiBev. Given that my mother works at ThaiBev, I started building a relationship with the company since I was young. When I was studying at the university level, I was a trainee here. I felt like I could be myself with my co-workers, so I wanted to work at ThaiBev. I am delighted to be working here with warm and friendly co-workers, so I can work happily. Moreover, ThaiBev encourages employees to attend outside seminars as well as providing scholarships for master’s and PhD degrees for its employees”
Leadership for Sustainable Education Development Project (Connext ED)

ThaiBev continues to support education for children and youth through the Connext ED project which is now in its third year. In 2019, over 25 million baht in funds have been awarded to organize activities and projects focusing on the simulated trading business called “Tham Ma Kha Khai” for students in the lower and higher education levels to develop business skills and help ease the burden on their families’ expenses. ThaiBev also hosted the OTOP JUNIOR contest for more than 290 primary and secondary schools throughout Thailand. In addition, cooperation has been expanded to a total of 27 universities nationwide for students to enhance their business skills, life skills and instilling good behavior through learning and real-life practice.

This project is supported by education networks, such as universities, community education institutions, related government agencies and ThaiBev’s volunteer staff.

Accounting professor, Faculty of Accounting and Management Maha Sarakham University (University network)
As a university mentor for the Mahachai Pittayakarn School in Maha Sarakham, in your opinion, how do the students benefit from the “Tham Ma Kha Khai” project of raising chickens for organic egg production?

“There are so many benefits. First, students have better-quality lunches and can earn an income from it. Second, students who do not continue their university education will have a career and will not be a burden on society.”
The OTOP JUNIOR contest
Another outstanding activity under the simulated business project “Tham Ma Kha Khai” is receiving cooperation from the Community Development Department under the Ministry of Interior. The contest has become well-known via online public relations channels; its Facebook page has 2,373 followers. The activity provides an opportunity for fourth-year elementary and third-year high school students to present unique products that reflect local identities. Moreover, the OTOP JUNIOR contest offers a platform for students from schools participating in the simulated business project “Tham Ma Kha Khai,” as well as students all over the country to showcase their talent, thereby supporting the next generation of entrepreneurs.

Over the past two years, there were more than 600 contestant groups from schools all over the country participating in the contests. There were 20 groups who passed through to the final round and received awards worth more than 500,000 baht in total to further develop their products. Furthermore, the students are given a chance to exhibit and sell their products in OTOP City events, and join business-perspective activities.

They also joined the “Walk Rally” activity to exchange ideas with Young OTOP entrepreneurs and broaden their experiences outside of the classroom through field trips.

Opportunities for Children with Special Needs

The simulated business project “Tham Ma Kha Khai” was also implemented in seven special children schools in six provinces, including Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Nakhon Sawan, Phitsanulok, Ubon Ratchathani, and Songkhla. Classes and trainings with special needs for more than 200 children to teach them to better concentrate and develop arm muscles through bas-relief art and the production of coconut lamps.

The teachers took the children to learn production methods directly from business owners. Each student completes different components of the finished product; then assembles the finished product as a group. Currently, there are several products made by special children, such as key chains, coconut lamps, and herbal balm. Although there are limitations in the presentation of the products, these children also get a chance to join the OTOP JUNIOR contest with other schools and receive an opportunity to win “inspiration awards” in order to give them inspiration and confidence.

Partnership School Project

ThaiBev has joined the Ministry of Educational in driving education reform in accordance with the “Thailand 4.0” policy. The objectives are to build cooperation between the private sector, civil society and other sectors in order to improve school management and curriculum development so that it better suits the needs of local communities and builds the skills for children. ThaiBev was one of the private companies that participated in the management of 19 schools in 13 provinces during the 2018 academic year. In the 2019 academic year, ThaiBev supported four additional schools in two more provinces and collaborated with the Mechai Viravaidya Foundation, one of the initiators of this project, to strengthen and drive the project forward for a period of three years or until 2021.

What are some of the changes you observed after joining the Partnership School Project?
“Tha Chang Wittayakhan School has joined the Partnership School Project for two years now. We have seen many changes such as students receiving awards from sculpture competitions, the implementation of a palm oil project, the transformation of an empty area into a learning space for students, and the community. Moreover, ThaiBev’s coordinators have also taken part in education management. They are not just planning but also evaluating and developing the school. We would like to thank ThaiBev and ThaiBev’s coordinator, for placing importance on education management in order to better develop people for the society.”

What made you join the singing contest, and how do you feel after receiving the award?
“Currently, I am a second-year student in high school. I live with my father; just the two of us. On the weekend, I would work as a Thai masseur to earn money for my father and to go school. I am not a confident person but I like singing, so my teacher asked me to join the singing contest. After I won the Kids Day singing contest, I was so proud of myself and felt more confident. I’d like to thank ThaiBev for this opportunity. I finally found my dream that I want to be a professional singer. I will keep practicing and make my dream come true.”

Pichet Thinyoo
Member of the Provincial Administrative Organization Council, Lampang Province Chairman of Basic Education Board
“I am delighted and thankful to Thai Beverage Logistics Co., Ltd. (TBL) for sharing their thoughts and developing Partnership School activities with the school. Children get the opportunity to access modern educational media in the music, sport and academic fields. Those things will help support their academic achievement, and improve children’s IQ and EQ.

I believe that all Educational Service Areas, Provincial Administrative Organizations, and TBL will continue to work together to improve the quality of education at the Anuban Ko Kha (Namtarn Anukhro) School.”
Examples of Partnership School Project Activities
  • Training to assist people in emergencies at Wat Chula Manee School, Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya Province

ThaiBev aims to improve the professional skills and life skills of students and encourage them to be good people as a foundation for life development in the future by supporting knowledge and providing training activities in schools. This includes planning with teachers, school directors, education boards, and communities, which reflects the idea of “HTS” “Home-Temple-School,”. These three are the main pillars that have held together and sustained the balance of Thai society. It shows the cooperation between “companycommunity enterprise-government” in order to connect local areas and all of the sectors to strengthen the foundation of Thai society and work towards sustainable development.

“ThaiBev has been contributing to the simulated business project “Tham Ma Kha Khai” which is one of the important projects to use education to sustainably strengthen the economy and society. It is like a starting point to develop people to be skillful, and to have knowledge to create wellbeing and prosperity for families and communities. The Ministry of Education is committed to provide education to develop children, youth, and the general public in order to meet the needs of different areas of the country and be in line with Thailand’s 20-year national strategy. The Ministry of Education has followed the “Understand, Achieve and Develop” strategy from His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej The Great (Rama IX) and incorporated the guidance of His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn Phra Vajiraklaochaoyuhua (Rama X) regarding education.

1. First is having the right attitudes towards the country and adhering to the institutions of the nation, religion and monarchy.

2. Second is having a stable life with morality and ethics.

3. Third is to have a decent job.

4. Fourth is to be a good citizen.

There are four foundations for education. These four foundations create the education-building concept for opportunity and reduce the differences in economy and society in the long term. Thank you to Thai Beverage Public Co., Ltd. for its commitment in supporting children and youth development as well as boosting the economy at the community level.”
Princess of Naradhiwas Rajanagarinda Teachers Project
ThaiBev has been promoting the Princess of Naradhiwas Rajanagarinda Teachers Project continuously for seven years. From the 5th through to the 11th year of the project, more than 70 schools have been involved. The awards for social and environmental development projects are divided into two categories: awards for teachers in the current year and for teachers who have been recognized in the past.

This year, Mr. Suthep Prakit who participated in the fifth year of the project, a teacher from Ban Khlong Nam Sai school in the Office of the Basic Education Commission, Yala Province, was selected to receive the “Princess Maha Chakri Award” from Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn. This award is given to teachers who make changes, and improve students’ quality of life to be successful and contribute to education.

The Princess of Naradhiwas Rajanagarinda Teachers Project also sponsors activities to develop careers, self-reliance and income for families; for example raising livestock and chickens and growing mushroom for school lunches.

The project also supports the purchase of sewing equipment to further process goods into higher value products. It has helped develop the communities into a learning center based on the Sufficiency Economy concept to learn about new careers and help families to be more self sufficient and live sustainably.

Career Development with ThaiBev Project
ThaiBev is supporting projects to promote quality of life and

environmental protection in remote communities that feature diverse ethnicities and languages. The Sufficiency Economy model has been introduced to families, communities and even schools in order to build careers and create income.

The project works to build the foundation for sustainability and helps reduce inequal access to education by providing courses in sewing, baking and unisex hairdressing. The unisex hairdressing course, in particular, is very popular, perhaps because the participants rarely had an opportunity to take such courses. The hairdressing curriculum was included in the school curriculum. There are two salons that were opened in Nan Province: in Nam Poon Village, Nam Phang Subdistrict, Mae Charim District, Nan Province and at Ban Hang Thang Luang School, Bo Kluea Subdistrict, Bo Kluea District, Nan Province.

Creating A New Generation of Socially Conscious Entrepreneurs
(Beta Young Entrepreneur Project)
This project began in 2011 with the collaboration between the Thai Chamber of Commerce, University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce, and the Sirivadhanabhakdi Foundation. Together these organizations train students from the College of Entrepreneurship, University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce, to become knowledgeable, capable, socially responsible businessmen and women. A variety of activities develop students’ skills and business knowledge, along with cultivating morality and ethics.
Business promotion activities
ThaiBev funds practical business experiments to give students the opportunity to participate in the following activities during their four years in university:
  • Freshmen students intern at ThaiBev to learn about business work processes. They will have the opportunity to acquire real work experience and learn to work as a team.
  • Sophomore students learn and experience a real business environment through trading activities and launching a start-up business. Some of the students who have completed this project were able to build their own businesses, earn more income, and become successful.
  • Junior students learn about different aspects of setting up a business through a simulated business project. They also learn organizational management skills.
  • Senior students provide advice for Junior and Sophomore students working on the start-ups and simulated companies.
  • Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors participate in various

ThaiBev activities, such as the River Festival. The students set up a booth to sell kratongs. This helps them practice planning, cost management, and develops sales and marketing skills.

Activities to promote morality and ethics

ThaiBev values entrepreneurship. In addition to developing students’ capacity to be knowledgeable and capable entrepreneurs, they are also taught to have integrity to reduce corruption in society. Through this program they are given the opportunity to build relationships with the company and build a stable network. Students participate in the following ThaiBev-sponsored activities to benefit society:

  • Beta Young Unites to Fight the Cold with ThaiBev
  • Volunteering at the River Festival
  • Other activities that benefit society using profits generated from the business simulation project

ThaiBev believes that graduates of the program will be able to run their own businesses. They will apply the knowledge and experience gained throughout the course in their career. They may also work for a leading company, perhaps one of ThaiBev’s subsidiaries. Currently, there are 150 students that have completed the program.

Senior Vice President Chief Corporate Affairs
The Beta Young Entrepreneur start-up business and simulated business certificate presentation ceremony, April 26, 2019

“The students get to learn from experience, whether it is a simulated business or a start-up business. They are able to adapt and learn from real life experience. They can combine this experience with their studies. When they start working, the important thing is the opportunities and the skills that they have; it is not just knowledge. If the students don’t have a chance to practice, there will not be any opportunities for them to improve their skills and knowledge for future use.”

Phiraphong Fusiri, PhD
Dean, of the College of Entrepreneurship University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce
“Every student who has gone through the start-up business and simulated business experience, they learn to work as a team, to be a good leader, and a good follower. It is useful training and will be a good foundation to help them become effective entrepreneurs in the future.”

Goals of Beta Young Entrepreneurship Project
2020 Goals
Create a network among all Beta Young Generation graduates for communication, story-sharing, business consulting, and a means to do business together.

Students learned directly from professionals on planning, teamwork, and organizing competitions. The students’ performances at the events were used for student evaluations at the end of the semester.
  • In cooperation with the Design, Business & Technology Management (DBTM) program at the Faculty of Architecture and Planning at Thammasat University, students participate in a case study provided by Fraser Property (Thailand) Public Co., Ltd and Grand Unity Development Co., Ltd. The students began by analyzing work plans and observing operations to identify problems and pinch points to create effective operational guidelines for the development firms. This project is compulsory for final-year students in the DBTM program. The students benefit from this project by working with leading companies to improve their skills and share useful knowledge with experts in various fields.
  • ThaiBev is a major supporter for the annual Chang U Champion Cup football tournament, a stage for more than 500 university football players to compete, train, and improve their chances of becoming professional footballers while attending university. More than 600,000 students from institutions in greater Bangkok compete in the tournament.
  • Students run a convenience store or mini mart as a simulated business (Dummy Business). This is part of the business administration curriculum at various universities. More than 600 students so far have had the opportunity to get real-life experience running seven simulated businesses.
Goals of EISA Project
