BANGKOK, November 9, 2015 - The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) honors and encourages philanthropic actions of individuals and organizations to create sustainable society through its annual "Social Recognition Project" covering seven areas. This year's award from the Population and Community Development Association (PDA) for rural social development, sponsored by SET, has just been granted to "Neon Kho Community Organization Development Institute"  (Rural university, in Rayong province, the eastern part of Thailand), while the award
from the Duang Prateep Foundation has been granted to Somsak Eamsaard.
 
These two awards are part of the awards in seven areas, selected by seven  organizations, recognizing the outstanding individuals, and is one of SET's key corporate social responsibility projects. The awards honor and motivate the social leaders who are dedicated to benefiting the society and encouraging others to follow their paths towards.
 
Chaiyawat Wibulswasdi, SET chairman said that the organization, Neon Kho  Community Organization Development Institute, selected by PDA, had remarkable work in developing rural communities in Rayong. In addition, this year the award from Duang Prateep Foundation to the person best exemplifies its key mission to continuously protecting residents from drugs went to Somsak Eamsaard, an ex-school principle and a community activist who has dedicated more than 40 years to fighting with drugs. At today's event, SET granted THB 2 million each to PDA and Duang Prateep Foundation for their great contribution to the society.

PDA Chairman Mechai Viravaidya said that since the establishment in 1974, PDA  has been committed to enhance rural community development to promote community self-reliance and empowerment, improve living condition, and educate people to do good deeds, in order to synergize to better the overall society. The SET's
Social Recognition Project has significantly supported PDA's mission. We congratulated Neon Kho Community Organization Development Institute, the awardee, based on its clear concept with determination to better the community's living condition, while coaching them to rely on themselves under Sufficiency Economy philosophy, a path towards sustainability.

This year's award was given to Somsak who has been devoted himself to teaching in Chumphon, a southern province in Thailand, and also dedicated himself to find ways to solve drug and drug-related problems for more than 40 years. After retirement, Somsak has continued to work for the community. His contributions deserved to be recognized and honored, and can be a good exemplary model for good deeds, making the Thai society a better place to live.
 
SET has recently granted an award, the award for Sugree Charoensook to Narong  Prangcharoen, a Thai composer of classical music with international acclaim, who has dedicated more than 12 years to enhancing the standard of classical music composition in Thailand and building reputation for Thailand.
