Dear Donor and Supporter,
In March, EDF has finalized and announced the total number of 9,919 eligible scholarship candidates who passed our screening process and now in the waiting list of each scholarship program in this school year 2015.
This April to May will be the important time for EDF to fundraise for scholarships to help support those 9,919 needy students to fulfill their hopes to continue their higher education when school opens its first semester in the coming May 2015.
For the update about our recent scholarship fundraising progress, as of today (May 21, 2015), we have received total 6,590 scholarship donations which comprises; 4,572 lower secondary scholarships, 1,067 upper secondary scholarships, 195 scholarships for student with disability and 756 scholarship students who lost their parents due to the unrest in the 3 Southernmost provinces of Thailand. However, we still need additional 3,329 scholarships to cover the needs of all 9,919 students in queue to receive education opportunity in this year.
Therefore, this month’s featured story, we would like to present “HOPES” of some students among those 9,919 in our 2015’s scholarship waiting list which we strongly hope that at least one of them might, more or less, get some support from you so that they can have “Education Opportunity” to carry on their dreams of better future and empowering them with “Knowledge” and “Wisdom” to free themselves from cycle of “Poverty”.
The donation period for the first term of school year 2015 will last until May 31, 2015 and you can simply make your online scholarship donation directly through our secured online donation system in this website or contact us for more information at We are glad to act as a medium to help you forward your kind suport to a child in need.

Giving educational opportunities supports less fortunate children in bringing about lasting change, by lifting themselves out of this cycle of poverty. Knowledge and intellect are a wealth that they can forever possess. Please help support a child today!
