|Rico Foundation has funded university education for a dozen financially disadvantaged Thai children and trained hundreds more in tennis, sending them to tournaments in countries around the world.
Although there is some government aid available for higher education, it is still impossible for children of the poorest families to afford the additional cost involved. Therefore the foundation supports a few of these particular students. They are often the most motivated and see a University education as essential. They recognize this as a valuable opportunity to improve their own lives and enable them to give back to their communities.
