Dear Donor,
Firstly, we have to say thank you to donors and caring people who have continued giving life-changing opportunities to Thai less fortunate children through EDF Scholarship Program, which help enlighten, their hopes for better future.
On September 30, 2014 which was the last day of scholarship donation period for this school year 2014, EDF was able to raise the total number of 7,259 scholarship donations which comprises 5,317 lower secondary scholarships, 772 upper secondary scholarships, 6 scholarships for university education, 240 scholarships for students with disabilities, 892 scholarships for orphaned students in Thailand’s 3 southernmost provinces and 32 special scholarships for earthquake affected students in Chiang Rai province.
We strongly hope that those 7,259 lucky students will make the best use of the opportunities they received to bring about the real change to their lives and growing up to be the “Giver” who helps and cares for other less fortunate people in the society. 
Therefore, October’s Featured Story will be “A Big Thank from Nam”, a story of Nam or Siriporn Yookashane, a 13-year girl and 7 grader from Pathumthani province, who was one of EDF scholarship recipients in this school year 2014. If some of you could remember, EDF once published her story in late 2013, when she was in grade 6. At that time, she was a candiate for EDF scholarship (Read Nam's story in 2013). At present, she is still living with her elderly grandmother and little siblings. She thanks for EDF scholarship that helped her survive at school during her grandmother got sick and unable to work to afford any money for her schooling.
