In terms of its social contributions, the Bangkok Post Foundation, formed in 1982, has provided financial support without binding conditions to hundreds of less privileged children throughout the country for kindergarten, primary and secondary school, vocational college and university studies. Many students have graduated and established their careers.
Over the past 40 years since its establishment, the Bangkok Post Foundation has sponsored approximately 3,700 scholarships. The foundation is proud of the students’ successes. Some 370 students have achieved PhDs, Master’s Degree or Bachelor’s Degree with First Class Honours, Second Class Honours and outstanding grades.
Here are some messages from the Bangkok Post Foundation’s scholarship alumni.
Besides helping children in need, the Bangkok Post has reached out to lepers through the Phud Hong Lepers Foundation, founded in 1974.
Over the past 48 years, the foundation has built a kindergarten for lepers’ children, built two fully equipped 60-bed hospital wards, provided equipment for minor operations, built an all-purpose building, coordinated with government authorities in building a reservoir, set up vocational training for patients and their children, and much more.
At present, 105 patients and their family members are officially under the care of the Phud Hong Lepers Foundation.
We will continue our commitment to serving society while keeping our readers abreast of the latest developments at home and worldwide for many years to come.
