Before he passed away in January 2023, Rob Waardenburg decided personally to sponsor full scholarships for Thai or indigenous/ethnic minority students who are around 12 years old with disadvantaged backgrounds. Rob Waardenburg's legacy continues to uphold the dreams.

Meet Yoom, a 14-year-old girl living in Thailand with her aunt, uncle, older sister, and two cousins in a small rental house. Yoom and her sister moved here after losing their parents in Myanmar. With six people in the household.

Despite uncertainties about residency due to their non-Thai nationality, Yoom is studying in Grade 6, and dreams of going to university and becoming a teacher.

Thanks to the generous support of Rob Waardenburg, these students are able to pursue their dreams. Our heartfelt gratitude goes out to Rob Waardenburg for making a lasting impact on these young lives.

When Annelies van Erp and Hans Spin forwarded our birthday campaign newsletter to 110 friends, they raised an incredible €800 in donations. Now, imagine the impact if each of the 2000 people we emailed did the same!

Here’s the magic of sharing: If 2000 people forward the email and achieve similar results, we could raise up to €1.600.000! If just 10 people forward the email, we could raise €8.000, helping thousands of Internally Displaced Persons and refugees along the Myanmar - Thai border. If 200 people forward the email, we could raise €160.000, enough to run multiple projects and provide significant aid.

A huge thank you to Annelies and Hans for showcasing the power of community. Your support sparks incredible change.

Let’s keep the momentum going! Forward our emails spread the word, and together, we can make a monumental impact.

Supporting girls’ education through scholarships

What would you do if your parents asked you to drop out of school to help earn money to support your family? This is the choice faced by so many... and it is why we believe it is so important to help provide scholarships to students who would otherwise have to make this choice.
