They are scholarship students sponsored by the Thai Govt. They come from all over Thailand and are put into competitions by their schools, usually eventually being international olympiad medal winners in maths and physics. Their govt then pays for them to be educated in Europe or the US and they are contracted to return to work for their country for twice as long as they have been educated. So the Thai govt gets 20 years of work from top brains.

John Oliver was born without hands, yet lived a full, active and creative life using mostly his left foot. He was an artist, a chef, and for 30 years was Captain of the tug Hobbit on the Medway and Essex and Kent Coasts. He was known to many in this area.
Faversham resident Frances Beaumont was a life-long friend and is
writing a book about him, composed of many people’s memories.
Come and hear his story and see a photo presentation.
Frances is looking for his paintings and local memories to include in her book,
due to be published next year.
