Where We Work
The majority of our projects take place within Mae Hong Son, the poorest of Thailand's 76 provinces.
Most Karen villages are reached from smaller roads and mud tracks either side of the main road running south from Mae Hong Son to Mae Sariang. The Karen Hilltribes Trust has a small office in the town of Khun Yuam, situated in the middle of Mae Hong Son.
Mae Hong Son is a mountainous area with an extreme climate. Remote villages are cut off during the rainy season which lasts from July to October. Heavy rains and severe droughts, which have worsened in recent years due to climate change, bring with them difficult challenges.
