Dear Donors and Philanthropists,

February 2023 was the last month of the 2022 academic year in Thailand. It was also the month that EDF Foundation announced the selection of qualified students, both new and repeater, on the waiting list who will receive scholarships for the upcoming 2023 academic year. A total of 9,753 poor and disadvantaged students have been marked to receive the scholarships from more than 1,400 schools and educational institutions across Thailand.
Since July 1, 2022, we have been accepting scholarship donations for the 2023 academic year to increase our chances of funding as many recipients as possible.
As of March 1, 2023, we have received donations for 4,929 scholarships comprising 4,304 scholarships for junior high school students, 324 scholarships for high school/vocational school students, 210 scholarships for students with disabilities to study in regular co-educationally schools, 76 scholarships for orphans in three southern border provinces and 15 scholarships for university students. 
By June 30, 2023 we still need at least 4,824 additional scholarships support to fulfill their hopes for a better future.
We are introducing to you some of students still waiting for support for the coming academic year. Kook Kai is a student with eyesight disability from Ubon Ratchathani province. Atitaya is a vocational college year 2 student from Kalasin province, who works part time to support her own education. The other two under-privileged students are Kanom-Jeen and Chok, both of whom have earned good academic achievements from Surin and Nakorn Phanom province. Each applied for lower secondary and upper secondary scholarships respectively.
With more than 35 years of committed work in improving children education and schools in the remote rural areas of Thailand, we recognize that the "poverty issue" is not only a lack of finances but the lack of many aspects of life as well, such as access to resources, respect for their rights, career and educational opportunities,
Your generous support is not only essential in reducing the financial burdens on these poor and disadvantaged students, it is their only hope to break out of the cycle of poverty that has enslaved them since their birth.
We are fervently asking your help to sponsor at least one underprivileged student through the EDF Foundation. Scholarship donations for the 2023 academic year will remain open until June 30, 2023.
You can make an online donation via the EDF Foundation website, or download the EDF Donation Form here. 
Please, we will gladly reply on any query you have, including details about your donation and about your sponsored students or additional support you wish to provide to your scholar. Please contact us at [email protected].


Respectfully yours,
Sunphet Nilrat
EDF Managing Director
