In this April 2014, EDF is preparing to deal with over 2,000 Thai rural schools under EDF Scholarship Program in the process to confirm the actual enrolment of new and continuing scholarship students in the coming May 2014 when schools start their first semester. Once student's enrolment is confirmed, EDF will manage to transfer the scholarship fund for the students accordingly.
This month’s featured story is the story of Bussarakham Kotama or “Nui”, an 11-grade EDF scholarship student from Rajprachanukroh 50 School, a boarding school for less fortunate or orphaned children located in Khon Kaen Province. Her father broke up with her mother just a few months before she was born and her mother decided to enroll her in the boarding school to lessen family’s financial burden.
Nui believes that “Education” gives people wisdom to define their own destiny and that is the reason why she applied for EDF scholarship program to further her high school studies since 2010 up to this year
