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 enable EDF to provide scholarship supports to 7,259 less fortunate students in this school Year 2014which 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.
For December’s Featured Storyiwe would like to introduce "A Littel Guide", an interesting story of Rattikarn Phukaew or Parn, 13, a 7 grader at Ban Rai Thong Khoon School, Nakorn Ratchasima province. She is one among 7,259 students that were awarded with EDF scholarship in this school year 2014. Despite Parn was born less fortunate and had no father but she never gives up to her fortune and work part time as a little guide in a museum to help her mother earn for a living.
In the coming New Year 2015, aside from scholarship donation, you can further enrich life of a needy child or your sponsored child through age-appropriate presents of your choosing or buy an educational gift set from “EDF Gift of Learning Catalogue” (Click for more information) to celebrate the New Year which will not only give a smile to the child in need but also nurture the value of sharing of the present he/she receive among their less fortunate friends or classmates at school. 

For your information that, all donations made from October 1st , 2014 onwards will be provided as educational scholarship for needy students in the coming school year 2015 and EDF will keep you updated about any interesting student’s stories and the progress of our scholarship program in the school year 2015.
