Summary

Education is key to allowing young and aspiring students achieve their potential. Unfortunately for many in rural Thailand, getting an education has many barriers – and that is usually the cost.

Piyawat and Mol both attend the Ban Wanaluang School and have been outstanding students. Unfortunately for both Piyawat and Mol, their families are unable to cover the costs of their education.

Thanks to Learning Compass, which is an education-focused charitable organisation, and several private sponsors, we are able to provide important scholarships to these aspiring and dedicated students.

Background

Education is one of the critical factors in helping break the cycle of poverty for so many. For students growing up in rural Thailand, access to education is not a given. Moreover, for many of the most disadvantaged, the costs associated with travel, school materials and tuition put families in a difficult situation.

It is for this reason that we support scholarships and funding for students who otherwise would have to forego the completion of their schooling.

This project supports two aspiring students:
– Mol, a 15 year old, currently in grade 8. Her GPA last year was 3.89
– Piyawat, a 15 year old, currently in grade 9. His GPA last year was 3.8

Goals and Results

Education is one of the primary means for underprivileged youth to access more and greater opportunities in life. It is for this purpose that we support this project. Now, two motivated young students have the financial means to continue their secondary-level education and will have greater opportunities in the future.

We, along with our sponsor, Learning Compass, plan to support their tertiary education once they graduate from secondary school.
