Dear Donor and Supporter,

For 30 years that EDF Foundation has been implementing and administering Scholarship Program with our mission to prolong their school life of Thai 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.  From 1988 to 2017, with continuing support from caring donors both in Thailand and abroad, EDF has delivered scholarships worth totalling 613,845,899 baht to the total number of 364,916 disadvantaged students in 5,497 rural schools covering 55 provinces throughout Thailand.

For this school year 2018, I, on behalf of all scholarship recipients, have to express my sincerest thanks to our caring donors and supporters for your commitment and continuing support by your contribution of total 8,513 scholarships in this year  comprising 6,942 lower secondary scholarships, 980 upper secondary scholarships, 260 disabled student scholarships, 273 orphaned student scholarships and 58  university scholarships. 

Therefore, I would like to present you thank you messages from Aor, 13, from Nakorn Phanom province and Mac, 13, from Loei province as representatives of EDF scholarship recipients in this school year 2018. The scholarships they received are not only help relieve the financial burden of their families on their schooling, but also give them good encouragement in studying and empower them with potential to become self reliance and escape from the vicious cycle of poverty.
For the coming school year 2019 Scholarship Program. EDF is planning to call for scholarship applications from needy students throughout Thailand by the end of this year 2018 and we will from time to time keep you updated with our work progress and any interesting stories of the students.
From October 1, 2018 onwards, we start to accept the scholarship donation for Thai needy students in the upcoming school year 2019 and you can simply make your online scholarship donation directly through our secured online donation system in this website or contact us for more information at public@edfthai.orgEDF is most appreciative of your entrusted contribution and strongly hopes for renewed pledges for many years to come.

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 donate an educational gift set from EDF Education Gift Campaign to celebrate the coming Christmas and 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. 
Respectfully yours,
 Sunphet Nilrat
 EDF Managing Director
