Selection of the students based on the iSEE database application developed by EEF to identify those at urgent risk of dropping out from schools and in comply to the concept of “Leaving No-One Behind.”
“Esso Retail Sales has continuously organized fundraising activities to help students in schools around our service stations for 9 consecutive years. This is the first time that we partnered with EEF to identify students who need these grants and monitor the results even more effectively to ensure that they will have the opportunity to keep studying to fulfill their potential. Later this year, we will extend the help to other provinces including Nan,” said Manoch.
Esso is the first company in Thailand to use EEF’s iSEE application which has big data system to identify students who are in need. This will facilitate corporate organizations in giving on time support to bring students back to schools.
