Pay Pal Account opened up for Balsamo Scholarships

laosstudent.jpegThe William Balsamo Memorial scholarships were set up by THT (Teachers Helping Teachers), a grassroots organisation founded by members of the Himeji JALT chapter, to provide college education for deserving students in developing countries in Asia. It is now possible to make donations using Pay Pal.

Peter Wanner of THT said 'We hope to generate some donations into the new account since Pay Pal should be easier than direct deposit for many people. We have already received 10,000 yen to start replenishing the scholarship fund and appreciate the generosity of anyone wishing to help fund students who need scholarships to pursue their college education in Foreign Languages Education. We usually cover full tuition for approximately 16-20 students every year if we have enough money to offer the worthy candidates of those universities (i.e. Bangladesh, Vietnam, Laos, and Philippines). Generally, 10,000 yen will pay for a full year’s tuition in colleges in these developing countries. Please make payments for Scholarship Fund to Please refer to the home page for the other postal bank account number if you wish to make a direct deposit instead.
