Our volunteers

Total commitment to student welfare

SET’s five Thai and three non–Thai trustees bring perfect all aspects of the foundation’s work. Between them, they have long experience in education, student welfare, social development, charity organization and business management.

The trustees are Mr Sievert Larsson (president), Mr Naret Muenrod (director), Assistant Professor Mrs Supaporn Pornpibul, Assistant Professor Dr Teeppipat Suntawan (treasurer), Ms Dalad Anuttarunggoon (secretary), Mr Adrian Topham, Mrs Pleonpit Grataychan, Mr Martyn Bayne and Assistant Professor Dr Phisarn Khrusang. (Dr Phisarn is a former SET scholarship student and was supported all the way through his studies, from high school to PhD). The trustees do not simply serve on a committee. They all take an active part in SET’s activities, often traveling to remote parts of Thailand to personally present scholarships and welfare grants.

SET has two paid members of staff – Mr Sorasing Kaowai (project coordinator), Ms Pattra Klayrak (accounting officer).

In addition to SET’s own trustees and staff, we work with around 70 volunteers at our scholarship centers. Between them, they interview thousands of new students at the beginning of each academic year to find those who are most deserving of SET support. We couldn’t work so efficiently without them.
