Ada Chirapaisarnkul is working on initiatives to use philanthropy and social investment as an enabling tool to tackle education inequality in Thailand, aiming to reach out to 5,000 underprivileged children in 2017. Her exposure to the social finance concept in the classroom and access to world-leading practitioners in the UK have since inspired her to build a career leading the development of the social finance ecosystem in Thailand; for example, co-creating - the first and largest crowdfunding platform for social-impact projects.

She holds a Master’s Degree in Environment and Sustainable Development from University College London.
