Charity information

Anglo-Thai Foundation

We make grants to schools to provide clean drinking water, decent toilets, school vegetable gardens and to encourage self-sufficiency. In 2013/14 380 children are also being financially supported.

Founded 1990

  • Mission statement

    The Anglo-Thai Foundation has been making education grants since 1990 to bright schoolchildren from the poorest families in Northeast Thailand (Isaan) to ensure they are able to attend school and complete the education provided by the state. 

The children are chosen by the headteachers of their schools and we support them from primary level through secondary school and on, if they make the grade, to college and university. We also make special hardship grants to people suffering from AIDS, cancer, and other diseases, disabilities and misfortunes.
    When funds allow, we make grants to schools to provide clean drinking water, hygienic toilets, libraries, school vegetable gardens and fish breeding ponds to encourage self-sufficiency. Our area of activity is mainly Sisaket, Surin, Buriram and Ubon Ratchathani.
