School Field Trips Back to top
Field trips will open up opportunities for international students to gain firsthand experience of real rural northeastern Thai village life, language and culture.
By home-staying and doing development activities with local children and villagers such as school painting, library renovation or walking campaigns, students can better understand themselves as well as others who come from different social and cultural backgrounds. This rare opportunity for personal growth will allow students to develop into open-minded, well-rounded individuals while helping to bring about tangible improvement to impoverished community they visited.

Give as You Learn Back to top
Get your students into a routine of sharing and thinking about unfortunate others as they gives up 10 baht of their pocket money monthy towards any EDF charitable projects of their choice.
We will entrust the EDF donation boxes to teachers who are in charge of participating classes and collect the boxes at the end of the school year.

International Baccalaureate (IB) Program กลับสู่ด้านบน
The IB program a pre university educational program where the CAS (Creativity, Action, Service) is required to finish the course. In order to receive the diploma, students needs to finish the requirements for CAS where we are able to come with innovative ideas to assist the students to become involved in the community and learns the importance of giving to other and experience a “real life” experience in how their small efforts can change the life of someone else.
St. Andrew’s International School IB Program has successfully supported us through their cake sales, fashion show, etc. The past June 29- July 2’ 2009 is the IB field trip organized by EDF where international school students learned to adapt and undergo real life experience in activities in the village where their funds have extended a child to continue to be in school.

New International School Student from the IB Program also requested many donation boxes to spread in companies in support of poor children. Also, PR materials were given where the student act as ‘EDF’s voice’ in spreading the cause to other people.
