This is from the Facebook page of BEAM Education Foundation, posted February 25, 2021:
Our world became a LOT brighter this morning when members of the Chiang Mai International Rotary Club, presented a check of 196,000 Thai baht. The funds would cater for the registration and participation of about 18 BEAM students in the GED exams later this year! The success of our students in the GED exams opens up the opportunity for them to pursue higher education in universities.

A significant contribution, this support kick starts the Bob Carroll Memorial BEAM Scholarship Fund, in memory of the late Rotarian, Bob Carroll (top, left). Bob was a member of the BEAM family and volunteered with much joy to support the education of our migrant students. May his wonderful soul rest peacefully.
