AKHA OUTREACH SERVICES INC
September 13, 2009

Akha Outreach is run by Ajay and Nancy. It is a birth child of Paul Lewis, and is based on the destruction of Akha culture, forced or coerced conversion, and the removal of Akha children from their villages. It is part of an attempt to take over the Akha completely with one belief system not their own while desparaging their culture. Ajay of course does it for the money.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Thailand.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Stop its current practices, stop its religious focus, and go to really helping the villagers gain back their rights.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Waiting for the day they close.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Arrogant.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Really destroy the Akha.

Ways to make it better...

they hadn't been taking children away from villages and convincing them to abandon their own culture and religion.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Its own ideology of cultural destruction and racism against the Akha people.

One thing I'd also say is that...

there are many organizations like this destroying Akha culture in Thailand and taking away the children. Paul and Lori Vernon are also involved.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About once a year

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
