Thank you message from Mac
Sawasdee Krab (Greeting in Thai), my name is Sunet Gaewwien or you can call me Mac. I am now studying in grade 7 at Ban Tub Kee School, Loei province. I love playing soccer. I always practice playing soccer with my friends after school. I dream to be a national soccer player when I grow up.

When I go back home in the evening, I help my parents do household chores to lessen their burden. In the weekends, I also help them work in the corn field to earn extra income for our family, My parents are quite poor. The income is solely from their menial jobs in the field which is not enough to survive our daily lives. They sometimes need to borrow money from the neighbors. In someday, I do not get any allowances to go to school.
When school opened new semester, I saw my friends were wearing new school uniform and I really wishes to have one, but my parents did not have enough money to afford it for me.  Then I heard from my guidnace teacher that, there is EDF scholarship available for poor student, I then decided to apply for the scholarship to continue my education at least to complete lower secondary school (Grade9).

I felt very happy and delighted to received EDF scholarship in this year. I promised to be diligent in studying and do my best. For the scholarship fund, I spent it for my new school uniform and necessary school supplies. 

I would like to say thank you the scholarship donors for realizing the importance of giving education opportunity to less fortunate students which is such a great opportunity for me. I am really appreciated and thankful for your support and promise to study hard. Khob Khun Krab! (Thank you in Thai)
