Working together, SET and Mr. Sievert Larsson have changed the lives of thousands of disadvantaged Thai students. Without support, many of those young people would have been unable to study beyond high school – or even primary school in many cases. Instead, they would be working in mundane, poorly-paid jobs with limited prospects or opportunities to improve their lives and the lives of their impoverished families. Mr Seivert began supporting SET as an individual in 1998. From 2007, his generous support continued through his own foundation, the Mr. Sievert Larsson Scholarship Foundation (SLSF). The foundation is SET’s major donor. Without SLSF, SET would have been unable to achieve what it has done and continues to do, year after year

Mr. Sievert Larsson began supporting the New Life Center Foundation in 2007, with an initial grant for 40 students. Since that time, the SLSF/NLCF partnership has enabled almost 600 students to pursue their education. Karen and Mr. Sievert Larsson remain close friends, and enjoy seeing each other (in Thailand, the USA, or other countries) when they get a chance. They also enjoy sharing the story of how they met, so many years ago, through the linked journey of family and friends!

Karen Smith (New Life Centre Foundation)

I found Mr. Sievert Larsson to be not only an amazingly generous man but also a fantastic source of wisdom and calm, collected, practical common sense, not just in respect to SLSF projects but on all aspects of life…as well as having a great sense of humour! Over the last 9 years the Northern Programme has helped [approximate number to be provided later] of such students to break through financial and other barriers and achieve life-changing qualifications.
