Karen Hilltribes Trust is a non-profit organisation dedicated to supporting the Karen community in Thailand to build a better future for themselves. It was founded in the UK in 1999 following the tragic death of Richard Worsley, who had volunteered his time to live and work alongside the Karen people.
We have three key aims:
1. Improving health by installing clean water systems and sanitation.
2. Increasing access to education by providing school buses, dormitories and teaching.
3. Securing better livelihoods by building irrigation systems and regenerating farmland.
Through these aims the charity supports the Karen with community based projects that lead to self-help whilst still retaining their unique identity and culture. The long term vision is to see the Karen people empowered to support themselves in a sustainable way.
