Dear Donor and Supporter,

For 31 years that EDF Foundation has been implementing and administering Scholarship Program with our mission to prolong 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. From 1988 to 2018, with continuing support from caring donors both in Thailand and abroad, EDF has delivered scholarships to the total number of 373,414 disadvantaged students in more than 5,500 rural schools covering 61 provinces throughout Thailand.

For this recent school year 2019, as previously informed that, we had recruited the total number of 10,046 qualified scholarship candidates who passed our verification and screening process and inqueue for scholarship support from our donors in this year 2019.

According to the recent scholarship fundraising result of the 1st Term/2019 donation period (October 1st 2018 to May 31st 2019), the accumulated number of 8,015 scholarship donations had been received which comprises; 6,666 scholarships for poor lower secondary students, 729 scholarships for poor upper secondary/vocational students, 344 scholarships for students with disabilities, 245 scholarships for orphaned students affected from the unrest in the 3 southernmost provinces and 21 scholarships for university students. As a result, there are still the remaining 2,031 students who unluckily missed a chance to get scholarship support from the 1st Term/2019 donation period.

Scholarship support from you is crucial not only to 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.
EDF has, therefore, opened the 2nd Term/2019 donation period, from June 1 until September 30, 2019, to help fulfill wishes to get educational support for those 2,031 remaining scholarship candidates. 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.
Respectfully yours,
 Sunphet Nilrat
 EDF Managing Director
