Education and training

In Thailand, we are involved in many projects ranging from local scholarships for underprivileged children to school facility improvements. We are partnering since 2012 with a well-establish Thai non profit organization, Education for Development Foundation, on an integrated development program which aims to build larger, more sustainable solutions for education and community development. The program has already benefitted around 20,000 students, teachers and community members in the Songkhla area.

We also support other educational projects in Thailand and our scholarships have so far allowed over 2,000 underprivileged school and undergraduate students to stay in school and pursue higher education.  Link to: http://www.mubadala.com/annual-review-2015/en/investment_approach/investing

Meanwhile, in Indonesia, we support students from fishing communities through scholarships to study at Kotabaru Polytechnic, South Kalimantan. We have been supporting school facility improvements in Samboja, East Kalimantan and funding facility improvements and education activities for an orphanage in Jakarta.
