The Hill Tribe people live in remote areas scattered across Northern Thailand with little or no access to education. Many fled from conflict in Myanmar or other surrounding countries. This lack of education makes the hill tribe children prone to poverty and vulnerable to exploitation within Thailand's ubiquitous sex and drug trade. Those who can get an education grow up able to take much better care of themselves, their families and their community. At this program location, we are working with 350-400 rural communities that cross to Sub Mekong region countries.


Projects

We support young hill tribe people who live in rural areas far from schools by helping housing in various locations during school semesters (ten months of the year). We ensure that these young people have access to education at the local school and that they have a safe place to stay, with access to food and healthcare.




  • Promote and educate communities about basic human rights to ensure equitable access to resources from government and private organizations.
  • Strengthen families and communities, through self-help groups, to share knowledge and promote unity in their communities.
  • Engage community members in educating their children and youth; saving for their future; livelihood development; caring for the environment; and cultural preservation.
