Karen Hilltribes Trust, Thailand Charity Profile
The Karen Hilltribes Trust is a UK registered charity (No. 1093548) with a Thai Foundation registered in Bangkok. The charity was founded in 1999 by Penelope Worsley to help the Karen people build a better future.
Since then the charity has developed a number of projects based around its 3 key aims:
1. Improving health
2. Increasing access to education
3. Creating opportunities for sustainable income generation.
Our long term vision is to see the Karen people empowered to help themselves in a sustainable way. At the heart of this lies the need to improve health. Reducing disease such as malaria and typhoid will benefit the local economy with more time available to earn money. With a sustainable source of income, the Karen will be able to invest in their social infrastructure such as education. We hope that in the future every Karen child will have the opportunity of a full education.
