Dear Donor and Supporter,
In February 2016, EDF had verified the qualifications and screened the applications of over 10,000 needy students from every region of Thailand who wish to get educational support from EDF scholarship program to continue their studies in the school year 2016. We finally got the total number of 9,053 qualified candidates who passed our screening process and queue up in our scholarship waiting list of this school year 2016   
On the other hand, we have been accepting scholarship donations for the school year 2016 since late last year until to date (April 21st, 2016) we have already raised the total number of 5,875 scholarships for all programs, however, we still need additional 3,178 scholarships to fulfill needs to continue the study of all 9,053 qualified candidates which can be classified by each scholarship program as below.

Therefore, we would like to introduce a touching story of EDF scholarship candiate for this school year 2016, “Patcharaporn Pakrut” or “Pat”an 11-year intelligent and delightful girl from Phitsanulok. Although she was born less fortunate, trapped in poverty and does not have even the electricity at home to do homework or reading books, but she never gives up HOPE, but focusing on studying until she could achieve the 1st place in class and got GPA of 4.00 in every academic year since grade 1 - 6.
Pat dreams to be a teacher, but she did not know how long her family could still support her. Thus, she decided to apply for EDF scholarship in the year 2016 with great “hope” that she will receive the “opportunity” that might become an important “turning point” that may change her life 
In this school year 2016, thousands others like Patcharaporn live in poverty and misery, and for many of them, they are in risk of dropping out school just because they are poor. You can be the one to help them. Support a Child Today!
From today until May 31st, 2016, You can help give those needy students a brighter future or renew your scholarship donation of this school year 2016 by 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.
All the scholarship funding donated through EDF serves to ease the crippling impact of poverty affects many rural students and their families. EDF is most appreciative of your entrusted contribution and strongly hopes for renewed pledges for many years to come.
Respectfully yours,
 Sunphet Nilrat
 EDF Managing Director
