October 2022: visiting our scholarship students!

Over the past three weeks we had the opportunity to meet with almost all our active scholarship students, some of which have been supported by Fund Isaan for over 10 years!
The past two years the covid pandemic made it extremely difficult for us to meet our students in person.
Now that travel was possible again we decided to travel through Thailand to meet our students and hand out their scholarship for the second semester of academic year 22/23.
We traveled over 4000 kilometers in less than 3 weeks. We started our trip in Petchaburi after which we moved on to Bangkok and Ayuthaya. After Bangkok we moved to Chonburi and onwards to Chantaburi. From Chantaburi it was up to Khorat, Mahasarakham and Khon Kaen. After Khon Kaen we moved on to Thatum, Surin and Buriram.
In total we visited over 120 students in 43 different schools, colleges and universities.
It was heartwarming to meet again with so many of our scholarship students and to listen to their stories, challenges and commitment to their studies. You guys rock!
Regretfully because of the floods in the South and in the provinces of Sisaket and Ubon Ratchathani we were strongly discouraged to visit these areas. This however didn’t stop us from paying our students in these provinces their scholarship and sending them our well intended messages of support.
Our students are once again ready for the next semester. We wish them all the best and we thank our sponsors who make our work possible.
