EDF Foundation was established in 1987 and has started our scholarship program for Thai less fortunate students since 1988 with only 41 scholarships granted to disadvantaged students in Udonthani province in the first year. Our mission was to prolong the school life of 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.
Almost 30 years from 1988 to 2016, with continuing support from caring donors both in Thailand and abroad, EDF has delivered scholarships worth totalling 586,208,299 baht to the total number of 354,842 disadvantaged students in more than 5,000 rural schools covering 55 provinces throughout Thailand.
