Dear Donor,
 
During the past week, EDF is delighted to get in touch a former EDF scholarship recipient, Nikorn Suwaluk or "Korn, who had been granted with 6-year secondary level scholarship from 2004-2009.  Korn would like to contact with his scholarship sponsor to express his gratude in giving hum a "Life Changing Opportunity".

Despite facing lots of hardship in life in his childhood, but Korn never gave up his education and tried hard until he could graduated bachelor degree and find a good job to support his parents and family as promised to his sponsor.

Therefore, September's featured stories, EDF would like to introduce you a story of Nikorn Suwaluk or "Korn" which we hope that his story would be a great encouragement for those who are now feel down hearted in your life.

For a recent update about EDF scholarship fundraising result for less fortunate children in this school year 2014, to date (September 16, 2014), there are the total number of 7,151 underprivileged students that have been sponsored with educational scholarships in this school year 2014;
which comprises 5,243 lower secondary students, 768 upper secondary/vocational students, 232 students with disabilities, 876 orphaned students in Thailand’s 3 southernmost provinces and 32 earthquake affected students in Chiang Rai province

However, there are still the number of 2,325 poor students that still have not been supported with any scholarships and are now facing high risk of drop out from school because these students are still lacking of necessary schooling and living expenses despite, the first semester of school year 2014 has already started for a ferw months.

Therefore, EDF has extended our school year 2014’s scholarship donation period for those 2,325 students until September 30th 2014 in order to give them the second chance to get scholarship support.
