Empowering Karen Communities

The Karen Hilltribes Trust is a community led organisation working with the Karen people living in Mae Hong Son, Thailand’s poorest province. Our mission is to empower Karen communities to improve their health, livelihoods and education.

Projects are designed, built and maintained by the communities who receive support, using their local knowledge. This approach achieves results which are high in impact, low in cost and sustainable. The vision of the Karen is a more self-sufficient future in which they can provide for their own basic needs. To find out more watch our video below.
