EDF has implemented the scholarship program to promote the access to education for less fortunate children and youths in rural Thailand since 1987 with the strong support from donors and supporters from different sectors in the society. For 28 years of our operation, we could raise the number of 344,223 scholarships valued 528,532,400 Baht to fulfill dreams for better future of Thai less fortunate children in more than 4,000 schools covering 51 provinces through out Thailand.
In next year 2016, it is not only the 29th year of our mission for education development, but it is also another year that we strongly need supports from caring people like you to light the “Hope” of many rural Thai children who are awaiting for “Opportunity” to have “Better Education Future”.
The life of “Wun” or “Kitinan”, a little boy aged 12 from Buriram province which we presented through the featured story “Life Lesson that may risk on his Future” could well represents lives of many thousands Thai less fortunate children who are struggling with poverty. After reading his story, I believe that many of you might recall when you faced with the challenging “Life Lesson” during the critical point of your life, may be same or different from what Kitinan is now facing. In order to surmount those difficulties in life, it is not only because of one’s “Effort” but also “Opportunity” in one’s life, which sometimes becomes “Life Changing Opportunity”.
Therefore, “Scholarship” is like as “Opportunity” that will hepe those less fortunate children to be sustainably self-reliant and to overcome difficulties in their lives because Knowledge and intellect are a wealth that they can forever possess. For the school year 2016, besides Kitinan, EDF forecasts that more than 10,000 less fortunate children are applying for the scholarship support from our scholarship program. In the coming festive season, please decide toSupport at least a Child!to help them bringing about lasting change, by lifting themselves out of this cycle of poverty.
All the scholarship funding donated through EDF serves to ease the crippling impact of poverty affects many rural students and their families. EDF is most appreciative of your entrusted contribution and strongly hopes for renewed pledges for many years to come.
