Dear Friends and Supporters,

Please allow us to express our gratitude for your financial support during this year’s fund drive. Many of you have supported our programs for several years, which is greatly appreciated and means so much to the needy children in Sri Lanka and Myanmar and us. We also want to say a special “Thank you’ to our new donors and hope that they will share in our joy when our programs bring positive results and our students complete their education successfully.


1. Myanmar
The 2 scholarship programs for the 2024/25 school year have just been finalized.

In total 103 children (98 girls and 5 boys) will get a scholarship for the school year starting in Yangon in June and in Chin State in July 2024. Due to the ever-increasing poverty in the country 12 girls have been added to the Chin State scholarship program.

This is our 11th year providing scholarships in Myanmar, which started with 41 children in 2013/14.


Please join us in wishing all students success with their studies in the new school year. It is hoped that the fighting in Chin State will cease or be at a minimum, to allow all our scholarship recipients to comply with the required standards for continued scholarship support in the coming years, i.e. at least 50% mark on average in all tests throughout the year and 90% attendance.

For full details about the two programs in Myanmar please refer to the article “Scholarships Myanmar 2013/14 – 2024/25” in Section ‘Scholarships’.


2. Sri Lanka
So far, the school year in Sri Lanka is running smoothly, although the dire economic situation in the country makes life difficult for many people including our students, the teachers and the schools in general.

A total of 224 children (209 girls and 15 boys) are on our 3 programs in Sri Lanka.

Combined, in the second half of this year,


327 students (307 girls and 20 boys)


will receive scholarship support. Exciting is that to date 207 students (182 in Sri Lanka and 25 in Myanmar) have graduated from High School, completing their education.

All of this is only possible due to your donations and compassion for the children.


Thank you for helping us, so we can help them.


Your Trustees of IFESCSF
