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.
On October 22nd 2021 the EDA foundation will celebrate 10 years of activities. During that evening two of the travellers will present the group trip made in January 2020 visiting all EDA projects plus a presentation of the present situation in Myanmar and Vietnam. Also some funds raising activities.
At the moment the EDA Foundation support 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 is being done in Thailand.
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.
The EDA Foundation has in 2013 decided to focus on support in education expertise The first person representing that idea was Marcel, he has been working from May until October 2014 on two projects in Thailand and in Vietnam. In 2017 EDA was sending out the education expert Roy van Lierop.
For 2019 four rural local villages in Myanmar were supported in the "Water&School"project. EDA also support two small schools in the area.
