The goal of the EDA Foundation is to support Education Projects for children in Asia.
The first project was focused on Vietnam, a country in strong development. First major project was a School CanTho, which started in May 2011. The goal was to earn money by providing English classes to be able to organise charity classes for streetchildren. Nowadays EDA still sponsors the streetchildren, the control on the school is stopped and EDA expanded with 4 more projects in two other countries: Myanmar and Thailand.
In January the EDA chairman visited the projects in Vietnam, only after 3 years due to the covid issue. Our local guy Phuong has admirably in spite of all events and issues kept the projects going. The children are going happily to school. EDA was allowed to speak a few words to the children and to give some nice gifts to them because of upcoming TET festivities (Chinese Newyear). The leader of the school showed great gratitude to EDA for the continuing support througout the years. Below a picture of children during the EDA visit.
Unfortunately it was not possible to visit the projectts in Myanmar due to the local problems.
On October 22nd 2021 the EDA foundation hasl celebrated 10 years of activities. During that evening two of the travellers did present photo's and pictures of the group trip made in January 2020 visiting all EDA projects, There was also a presentation on the present situation in Myanmar and Vietnam. On top of that there were some fundsraising activities.
At this moment the EDA Foundation supports financially the education of 2 relief projects in the area of Yangon Myanmar. Plus a pre-school in the same city and 2 streetchildren projects in Can Tho Vietnam. Support in expertise has been done in Thailand in 2013 and 2017.
Different project-owners have been asking for intensifying of the support, e.g. a teacher in Vietnam, a kindergarten in Myanmar, extra support for the pre-school, etc.
For 2019 four rural local villages in Myanmar were supported with the "Water&School" project. EDA also support two small schools in the same area.
