Target demographics: Poorest of the poor, especially minority children from isolated mountain villages without schools or access to health care, landless and illiterate women, and the elderly and disabled.
Geographic areas served: Phrao District, Chiang Mai Province, Thailand
Programs: Education, Microenterprise, Public Health. Warm Heart is a grassroots organization that helps villagers in the remote northern district of Phrao, Chiang Mai Province, Thailand. We organize community projects that improve access to education and basic health services, create jobs and sustainable incomes for the poorest in our community, and restore the environment to sustain future generations. Warm Heart is not a charity. Our programs address acute needs by helping people help themselves.
39 disadvantaged hill tribe children live in our Children's Home - giving them a safe home and chance to go to school and create economic opportunity. Our clean Water project has given clean water to over 4500 people. 1500 pregnant and nursing mothers and their toddlers receive vitamins through our partnership with the regional hospital. We've started surveying the elderly and disabled in our district - to day we have delivered over 100 wheelchairs and mobility aid.
