What is Fund Isaan?
Delivering ICT solutions for a better world is at the core of what we do, which is why we immediately related to the needs of Fund Isaan in Thailand. The living situation in this region, the poorest area of Thailand, makes it difficult for children to attend school. As their parents struggle to get by, kids leave school at an early age and even start working in very poor conditions. Studying is not a priority, teachers often lack skills to teach English or IT, the rural population depends on dial-up connections and the number of pupils in the same classroom often reaches 40 or more. This is definitely not the ideal situation for kids to enjoy education.
Fund Isaan commits to a better future for these children and their family by providing computer classes with Internet facilities at rural schools. They sponsor children with little financial means through scholarships and teach English, in cooperation with schools and universities in Surin and surrounding provinces.
