Daniela Best and her friends from Zurich, Switzerland, have generously supported COF since 2014. To assist with their fund raising they have established a Swiss association as a branch of COF….COFA Education Fund

Each year Daniela and her friends support a “dream holiday” for 50 COF children and staff to the beautiful island of Ko Lanta.

For the past three years COFA Zurich’s education fund has provided scholarship support for three COF girls studying at university.

Thanks to their support the three girls have been given the opportunity to continue their education at Kanchanaburi Rajabhat University.

Aegamui is studying Community Development and is currently on work experience in Kanchanaburi province, making regular presentations to council officials and village leaders.

Aegamui will graduate in late 2018 and then take up a senior role as a member of COF Outreach Program team

Aedamui is studying English Language and Teacher Training she will graduate as an English teacher in 2019.

Kaew is studying Tourism and Business Management, graduating in 2020 with a degree and qualification as an official tour guide/operator along with a business management degree.

All three girls were part of the original group of children resident at COF Child Protection Center when COF was first established in 2005.

They have progressed through COF education programs all three passing their High School exams with special commendations.

This dedication and application to their studies has continued at university, with all three girls achieving excellent reports and grades each academic year.

The life changing opportunities available to Aegamui, Aedamui and Kaew have only been made possible with COFA Zurich Education Fund support.
