Senior Associates Mike Williams and Harry Deelman—organizers of the Bangkok January Job Fair—with Trinity Holdings, long-time sponsor of many Search Associates fairs, helped raise over 81,000 baht ($2,300) for an education charity at this year's fair.
As an unexpected but welcome bonus, the winner of the raffle prize, who wishes to remain anonymous, donated the winnings back to the charity.
The Foundation for the Education of Rural Children (FERC) will use the money to fund scholarships for deserving students in rural Northern Thailand. This amount will assist nearly nine students to remain in school for a year--a great investment in these outstanding young people and the future of Thailand.
Well done Search Associates, Trinity Holdings, and FERC. And thank you, generous prize winner!
