Kids Ark Foundation
Ever since our association was formed we have cooperated with the Thai organization Kids Ark Foundation, which is based in Chiang Mai in northern Thailand. Kids Ark Foundation is a locally based organization working primarily to enable poor and orphaned children of the minority population Red Lahu to receive care and education, through sponsorship and through other methods. They also work on HIV prevention and reproductive health. Find more information about Kids Ark or visit their website.
We also support the local organization DLA (Development Quality of Life Lahu Association) which was registered by the authorities in the spring of 2008. They work towards helping the minority population to become Thai citizens and to learn about their rights and obligations. DLA aim is to spread knowledge about human rights and promote education. They send radio broadcasts in the Lahu language that reach about 200 000 people.
Dec 14 2010 Sila Jahe, head of DLA, were honored with a price from The Office of the National Human Rights Commission in Thailand for his continuous work for human rights for the minority group Red Lahu. The movie shows Sila receives the price and the movie is in Thai.
