The Kharma Foundation
The Kharma Family was established to help children in poverty in some of the kingdom's less developed regions to help local children get a better start in life. Their volunteers not only donate supplies and give financial support, but also undertake long-term projects and motivate young people and their parents to see the advantages of education and training.
The Kharma Family relies on the generosity of donors and its volunteers to do its work. If you'd like to help, you can do so by joining their team of volunteers or by making a donation:Donation
Nion Sunpawishu started the Kharma Family with the aim of improving the lives of many of the kingdom's poorest children. Knowing the dangers and problems that young people face in Southern Thailand, she wanted to reach out to local communities and invite them to join forces with talented volunteers to improve things for local children. Being a teacher of Thai to foreigners and living and working in Thailand meant that Nion had contacts with a range of people who wanted to give something back to Thailand and who had a range of skills to offer.Volunteer
We offer free lessons to groups of deserving students from Thai public schools. Selected by the teachers from local institutions, 4 to 8 deserving students learn with us to further improve their language skills.
Take a look at some of our students from Kunnatee Rutharam Wittayakom and Mae Phra Fatima. Know what's better than high-quality education? Free high-quality education!
The Mercy Centre
We also work with the Mercy Center. We provide them with training, logistics support and counselling to help them achieve their great goals of teaching English to orphans.
Mercy Centre is a shelter for street kids, five orphanages, a hospice, a home for mothers and children with HIV/AIDS, a 400-pupil kindergarten, a community meeting place, and a serene haven in the slums with small gardens and playgrounds. Originally built on a former Buddhist Temple site on port authority property, Mercy Centre has stood in some shape or form for nearly 40 years.Volunteer
