According to the fundraising result of the first term/2015 (Latest updates on June 22, 2015), we are able to raise the total 7,219 scholarships donations which comprises; 4,499 lower secondary scholarships, 1,722 upper secondary scholarships, 197 scholarships for student with disability and 801 scholarships for students losing their parents due to the unrest in the 3 Southernmost provinces of Thailand. However, there are the remaining 2,700 students among those 9,919 eligible students of this year, who missed the chance to receive the scholarship support in the first term of 2015.
On behalf of the scholarship recipients, we would like to express our thank and appreciation for the education opportunities and kindness you had given to those7,219 lucky students. We strongly hope that they can have assurance for the better future and gain knowledge to be self-reliant and escape from the vicious cycle of poverty.
