Duang Prateep Foundation
The Duang Prateep Foundation established the New Life Project in Kanchanaburi, Thailand to help underprivileged children escape slum life and learn skills to succeed in society. The goal of our project was to help the New Life Project advance toward self-sustainability by presenting viable options for generating profit from its oil palm plantation. Our analysis showed that both selling the palm fruit and establishing a palm oil production facility would be profitable, but with varying risk levels and social impacts.
