Financial Implications

Wonder Valley’s financial viewpoint is driven by three concerns.
Firstly, that the school should be accessible to all parents who are seriously interested in the cause of holistic education and therefore the paying capacity should not be the only criterion to admit a child. This means that we would be ready to offer partial and full scholarships in the future once a certain level of financial stability has been achieved.
Secondly, we are situated amidst a number of small villages whose children have been trapped for at least three generations in a vicious cycle of socio-economic challenges, from overspending and from the impacts of dropping out of school, premature marriages, teenage pregnancy, drug addiction, and chronic gambling. We cannot operate in isolation from this while being here and would like to become an active part of the local community, making holistic education accessible to the children living here.
Thirdly, our class sizes should remain small, with a high teacher to student radio to enable a close relationship between them.
Given the above commitments, there is likely to be a shortfall between our income and expenditures, to the extent that fundraising will necessarily be an essential aspect of  running Wonder Valley, particularly in the beginning stages when our community and approach to education is less known. 
It is our intention that the strategies used to make the Wonder Valley more financially sustainable should take into consideration aspects of raising visibility and local understanding of holistic learning in the wider communities. We aim to do this in several ways:


  • Conduct outdoor, experiential activities for children from the city during weekends or holidays.
  • Conduct educational workshops at community spaces in public areas such as universities, town libraries.
  • Rent out learning facilities and campus space to interested groups for extracurricular activities (once it is constructed).
  • Sell value-added farm produce from our garden.

Student Scholarship Fund

Donate to our Student Scholarship Fund

The scholarship funding at Wonder Valley is separated into:

  • funding for local children in the Songkhla province to access a WV education with a 100% scholarship
  • funding for deserving children to study here with partial scholarship

While Wonder Valley is  registered as a company, the intention is not to make profits for personal gains.  We take it as a social endeavour to ensure that everyone involved in this community has means for a quality life in all aspects including financially. However, we

understand that not every family has the means to access this kind of education. Because of this, we strongly believe that providing these opportunities is crucial to what we stand for.

It is with this in mind that we are humbly requesting donations toward tuition for those who lack the means. All of the money received will go directly to supporting the recipients of our scholarships. We will share news through our bi-annual newsletter.

Every donation, however small, will help our students realize their full potential. Currently, it costs 140,000 baht per child per one academic year, which in 2021 is less than US $5000, a small fraction of what it costs to go to international schools in most other places in the world.
