School Relief Efforts: Rebuilding & Returning the Joy of Learning to Children In Need

Who We Are

Yaowawit is a school, shelter and home for underprivileged children and teens affected by tsunami and poverty. Established in 2006, Yoawawit is located in the rainforest of Phang-Nga, 135 km north of Phuket, Thailand. Yaowawit promotes purposeful and meaningful learning in addition to the Thai curriculum and English language for personal growth & development. Yaowawit is also a learning center for marginalized local young adults who want to train in the areas of hospitality and sustainable agriculture. Today, 138 children and teens are under the care of Yaowawit — living, learning and preparing themselves for a better future ahead of them.

Why We Need Help

In late August 2018, the landslides caused by heavy rains have hit Yaowawit school — land, rocks, and debris plummet down the side of a mountain and took out most of the grounds our school buildings once stood firmly upon.

These destructive forces of nature have disrupted our school activities and the lives of  138 children and 15 teachers. The three buildings of our school, dormitory and learning facilities are in need of an urgent rebuilding and restoration in order to resume daily learning activities and education services to the children and our local community.

  • Because you understand the importance of purposeful learning and having a safe place to live, learn and play.
  • Because you were once given the opportunity to strive for personal improvement, and you always want to give back to those who now need it most in whatever way you can.
  • Because you believe in the power of giving that can transform your life and others.
  • Yaowawit is also an education institution registered under the Ministry of Education of Thailand therefore your contribution is tax deductible.
