How do we help?
Approximately 64% of the Mae Hong Son Province live below the poverty line. Many of whom belong to marginalised ethnic minorities such as The Karen.
As one of the most socially deprived and discriminated groups in Thailand, The Karen have limited access to basic socio-economic services such as health and education. On average Karen households earn just £644 per year.
To empower Karen communities to improve their lives, the Karen Hilltribes Trust (KHT) works across three main programme areas: Health, Education and Livelihoods. Click the links below to read about what these programmes work towards and to discover more about our current projects.
