After Covid-19 epidemic in Thailand, it effected to many ways, especially the education, and all schools were postponed to open. Generally the school has to open in May but changed to open in July. The teachers have to set up a new structure of learning by adding the social distancing measure as the way of life, students must take a seat keeping farer space from each other and before school re-opened the students have to attend lessons via online at home. When the school opens , their parents have to pay for semester fee, school uniforms, stationery and etc.
Sikkha Asia Foundation realized the need of student’s family after school opened, then we held this Sponsorship Ceremony, 2020 for 1st semester on 18th of July, 2020 at Sikkha Asia Klong Toey Foundation office. It was honor that Mr. Masashi Ono (Chairman of Takikawa Welfare Foundation) is coming to be the chairperson of our event. In addition Mr.Miyazaki Katsura, the director of Japan International Cooperation Agency (Jica) and Ms. Misa Takaki, First Secretary of Embassy of Japan in Thailand join the event.
