Warm Heart Foundation
Warm Heart Foundation is based in Phrao, a mountainous, rural community in northern Thailand, 40 miles (70 kms) north of Chiang Mai.
We are a non-religious, nonpartisan organization dedicated to the idea that every human being has the right to make a healthy and successful life.
We focus on five areas that community members tell us are critical to their future:
- Safe homes for at-risk children
We help children escape the perils of poverty, domestic abuse, child prostitution and alcoholism.
We help children and adults learn computer literacy, English and job skills to succeed in a changing world and move on to higher paying jobs.
- Agricultural Innovation
We collaborate with small farmers (65% of Thailand’s population) to develop improved agriculture practices to raise yields and incomes, and to teach environmentally friendly farming practices to sustain fertility for future generations.
- Job Creation
We help to provide the business acumen to move beyond poverty. 1/3 of the population lives on $1.50/day or less with average wages of $2.25/day.
- Public Health
We help the disabled and elderly living in remote areas to get access to adequate medical care. Patient to doctor ratios can top 13,500:1, not allowing enough medical resources to reach everyone.
