In 1998, Mr Sievert visited SET’s founder Peter Robinson (then Phra Peter Pannapadipo) to offer financial support to SET. During that first visit to Phra Peter’s monastery, Mr Larsson met 18-year-old Phisarn, who was living as a temple boy there. Phisarn was about to start his university studies for a degree in Political Science. Mr Larsson was impressed with Phisarn and the work that SET was doing and he soon became the foundation’s major sponsor. Later, he became SET’s chairman. Phisarn went on to complete his Bachelor, Master and PhD degrees and is now head of the Political Science Department of a university. In 2016, after completing his PhD, Dr Phisarn met with Mr Sievert and the other SET trustes to personally thank them for their 18 years of support. In 2017, Dr Phisarn became a trustee of The SET Foundation.
