Dear Donor and Supporter,
For 30 years that EDF Foundation has been implementing and administering Scholarship Program with our mission to prolong their school life of Thai disadvantaged students who traditionally struggled with attendance because of the lack of financial means, inferiorities, thereby missing the learning opportunities to which they were rightfully entitled.  Since then EDF has granted many more scholarships and continues in its commitment to empowering disadvantaged children through education.  From 1988 to 2017, with continuing support from caring donors both in Thailand and abroad, EDF has delivered scholarships worth totalling 613,845,899 baht to the total number of 364,916 disadvantaged students in 5,497 rural schools covering 55 provinces throughout Thailand. (View EDF Scholarship Statistic from 1988-2017)

As previously informed
that there is the total number of 8,950 qualified scholarship candidates throughout Thailand, in queue for scholarship in this school year 2018, but the number of scholarship donations that we had received during the 1st Term/2018 donation period (Oct. 1, 2017-May 31,  2018) is at only 5,391 scholarships. This means that 3,559 candidates missed a chance to receive  scholarship in this first school term of academic year 2018 which  can be classified by each program as follows: 

EDF, therefore, opens the 2nd Term Donation Period from Jun. 1 to Sep. 30, 2018 to give the second chance for  those 3,559 remaining candidates. 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 public@edfthai.orgEDF is most appreciative of your entrusted contribution and strongly hopes for renewed pledges for many years to come.

For those children in rural Thailand, poverty means lacking of opportunity and hope for a better future. Not being able to get a proper education prevents them from breaking the endless cycle of poverty and ignorance. You can help create a sustainable sharing society by providing educational opportunities because people who are educate have  potential to truly change their life for the better.
Please consider helping us to provide educational opportunities to make a brighter future to Thai underprivileged children.
Respectfully yours,
 Sunphet Nilrat
 EDF Managing Director
