it is a charity dedicated to working with the Karen people of Northern Thailand to help themselves to build a better future.

The three key aims are:

  • Improve health, by installing clean water systems and latrines.

  • Improve education by providing transportation to school, dormitories and teaching.

  • Improving opportunities for generating income by building irrigation systems and regenerating land.

As part of their work we provide gap year opportunities in Thailand teaching English, or installing clean water systems.
