Dear Donor and Supporter,

In Early August, 2015, EDF Foundation Team had visited our scholarship operation areas in various provinces of Thailand to follow up lives of students who have been supported through EDF Scholarship Program and we had a chance to meet with 2 new scholarship students, “Hoo” or Thanakorn Naraphong, 13, Grade 7, and “KR” or Sakkarin Somjai, 13, Grade 7, who were awarded with EDF scholarships for the first year, They were also ones among those 7,219 lucky students who have recently been granted with EDF scholarships in the first term of this school year 2015.. Therefore, we would like to let you know more about them through a story "Their Dreams are Coming TRUE!
 
For your further information, in the First Term of School Year 2015 (May 31, 2015), EDF had recently allocated the scholarships to the total number of 7,219 eligible needy students in our scholarship waiting list, which comprises; 4,499 lower secondary students, 1,722 upper secondary students, 197 student with disabilities and 801 orphaned students losing parents due to the unrest in the 3 Southernmost provinces of Thailand.
 
However, in this school year 2015, we have the total of 9,919 eligible students in our scholarship waiting list, consequently, there are the remaining 2,700  students, who missed the chance to receive the scholarship support in the First Term/2015. Most of them are those who need lower secondary scholarships and scholarships for orphaned students in the 3 Southernmost provinces of Thailand.


You can "CLICK HERE" to read more information about those 2,700 needy students and we do hope that at least ONE of them might receive your kind education support which will help them to have assurance for the better future and gain knowledge to be self-reliant and escape from the vicious cycle of poverty.
 
EDF has opened the additional 
scholarship donation period for the Second Term/2015  from Today until September 30th, 2015 to fulfill need for scholarships of those 2,700 students who missed the chance to get the education support in the First Term/2015, so that they can enjoy their studying with better quality of lives and without worrying about their family’s financial difficulties.

You can simply help them by making your online scholarship donation directly through our secured online donation system in this website or contact us for more information at public@edfthai.org. 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!
