Who we are

 

 

The Anglo-Thai Foundation aims:
To relieve poverty and sickness among the people of Northeast Thailand, especially children. To provide funds to schools to ensure a supply of clean drinking water and for projects benefiting both the school and the local community.
 
We receive no income from the Thai or British Governments, but enjoy respect both centrally and locally in Thailand and benefit greatly from the generosity of the Thai-British community in the UK and overseas supporters.
 
Founded in 1990, we have a board of 12 Thai and British trustees based partly in the UK and partly in Thailand.
 
The Buddhist Connection 
We are a non-denominational charity, but with a Buddhist tinge. Founded in 1990 by a Thai Buddhist monk and a British Buddhist, the charity at first confined its work to Nongrang Village, but rapidly expanded to cover other provinces in Isaan. It has retrenched in recent years and now works mainly in Sisaket, Khukhan and Buriram provinces in Northeast Thailand. Our founder, Phraraja Withetpanyakhun, is the abbot of Wat Mahathat Temple, Kings Bromley in Staffordshire, UK.

 

 
 
When funds allow we also make grants to schools to provide clean drinking water, hygienic toilets, libraries, school vegetable gardens and fish breeding ponds to supplement their diet. Special hardship grants are made to particularly distressed families to help them cope with illness, misfortune and disability.
