The THB 384,000 scholarship is awarded to children with the outstanding track record of excellence grades. They are from 32 schools over Phuket, Phang Nga, Satun and Maha Sarakham provinces that received the scholarships. This is the 2rd year we have awarded the scholarships keeping in line with the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility philosophy.
The Heinecke Foundation, named after CEO and Chairman of Minor International, supports less fortunate children of all ages throughout Thailand who have outstanding records of performance. Each year, the foundation gives scholarships over 400 students which help support their education from early learning stages through to graduation. In return, students are asked to support projects in their own communities. Since 2000, the foundation has supported thousands of children and many have since graduated to earn professional degrees.
