Yuvabadhana Foundation was started two decades ago under the care of Rayavadee’s owning company, the Premier Group of Companies, with the purpose of providing education scholarships to students of limited financial means. There are currently over 3 million disadvantaged children living below the poverty line in Thailand and over 800,000 young people who have to leave school to work once they are finished with the compulsory primary level of studies. Forced into the labor market at a young age, they do not get the education or opportunities needed to improve their lives.To date, Yuvabadhana has sponsored more than 4,000 children across the country, enabling them to complete a high school level education. In addition to scholarships, the foundation also offers programmes that help build self-esteem by developing individual talents that will last as a child grows into adulthood.
Each year Yuvabadhana arranges an art and a literature contest to foster participant’s creativity with the belief that art and literature are vital tools for teaching children to reflect on the world around them. Each company within the Premier Group of Companies donates 5% of its profits annually to the foundation. Outside funding is also sought and donations are greatly appreciated.
