Sponsor a Scholarship Student
Our Scholarship Program supports and mentors Kwah Dao students attending university and vocational schools.
Our scholarship recipients are inspiring pillars in the community.
These students come from disadvantaged families and would not have the means to pursue higher education without funding.
Considering that Student Scholarship is the highest expense in our operations, we are compelled to secure funding for each student prior to their admission into college or university.
In the 2017-2018 school-year, we are supporting nine students in their studies. Your help is invaluable.
With your interest in sponsoring a scholarship student, you are transforming the entire life of a child.
The youth that we choose to receive your donation will write to you and inform you of the progress they've made. you

Internships With Kwah Dao
Stateless children in Thailand face very difficult futures. At risk from human trafficking, child labor, poverty, lack of education, malnutrition, drug addiction and more. Orphaned, disadvantaged, and abandoned children need protection, education, healthy nutrition and of course, love and nurturing. By volunteering at Kwah Dao, you will help build a better future for children in an environment where human rights are respected in safe surroundings, driven by hope and determination.
We are always looking for interns to join our dedicated team both on the ground in Thailand as well as from abroad working remotely on tasks such as fundraising and website maintenance. Our field-based internships are a great opportunity for individuals seeking experience in the NGO sector abroad while gaining first hand experience with a grassroots foundation. Our youth centre also warmly welcomes experienced educators seeking to share their expertise and gain experience in a culturally rich region of Thailand.
We strive to cultivate enriching internships that are mutually beneficial for our interns, our communities and Kwah Dao as a whole.
While we do not currently fund our internships, we believe that the knowledge and experience gained from our small, growing organization is invaluable. Many of our prior interns have received funding through grants through their universities and external foundations.
We ask interns to commit to at least three months to our organization. Because developing trust and providing a sense of stability for our communities takes time, interns who can commit to yearlong internships receive priority.
If you would like to learn more about our internships or have any questions, please contact Bobbie Coleman, our Operations Manager.
We accept applications on a rolling basis, so the earlier you submit an application, the better.
