Pattanarak Foundation

“Pattanarak” stems from two Thai words meaning “development and conservation,” accurately describing the organisation’s approach in working with rural populations living near and in critical conservation areas along the Thai national borders (Thai/Myanmar and Thai/Laos borders). The organisation empowers women through social enterprise development, artisanship, food and income security and technical agricultural training.

“Pattanarak Foundation believes that stronger women mean stronger communities.”
