It is easier for OpenmindProjects and our volunteers to help Burmese and minority hill tribes in Thailand than in Burma, for political and safety reasons.
Some ten years ago we set up pilot projects in Northeast Thailand to test and learn how you can help poor and isolated children. Our ambition was to find a way to help an increasing number of children to better learning opportunities. Now we have started to support projects for Burma refugees and migrants in Thailand and with the help of volunteers we want to be able to support more such projects since they desperately need our and your help.
With the experience we’ve gained from our test projects as well as nearly ten years in our permanent projects we can set up similar projects in areas which need support because of their poverty.
